National Law Firm Baron and Budd Responds to Disproportionate Harm Brought to Women Using Lipitor, According to Study

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) August 02, 2013

Baron and Budd, a national law firm, is confronting the alleged association between type 2 diabetes and Lipitor use in female patients by delving into Lipitor lawsuit investigations. A popular cholesterol-lowering drug used to lower LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, and triglycerides, Lipitor has not been recalled. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has asked that the manufacturer of Lipitor, Pfizer, cite the risk of increased blood sugar on the drug’s warning label. This request follows the publication of several studies that allege a connection between Lipitor use and the development of type 2 diabetes in women. (

In May of 2013, the American Association of Justice (AAJ) published an article titled Unequal Harm: The Disproportionate Damage to Women from Dangerous Drugs and Medical Devices that helps to expose the heightened susceptibility some women may have to dangerous drugs. The article cites many reasons. Women are sometimes left out of drug and product safety inspections and testing. Also different hormones and body compositions can make women more susceptible, or cause them to react differently, to medications tested previously on men. (

“We are concerned about the alleged risk of developing type 2 diabetes for women taking Lipitor. Our office is dedicated to helping those who have been harmed by neglect, including dangerous drugs and we will work to make sure that this serious alleged risk is addressed,” said Russell Budd of Baron and Budd.

In addition to Lipitor, several other dangerous drugs have recently come into question for their alleged propensity to harm women.

Women who may have developed type 2 diabetes while taking Lipitor are asked to contact Baron and Budd immediately at 1.866.844.4556 for a free consultation to find out if they are eligible to participate in a Lipitor lawsuit. Currently, the Lipitor lawsuit involves women who developed type 2 diabetes while taking Lipitor.
