Avandia Diabetes Drug Withdrawn

A quick note to let you know that Avandia (Rosiglitazone) has been withdrawn by regulators and will no longer be prescribed in the UK for type 2 diabetes. UK doctors wrote over a million prescriptions for it just last year despite controversy (now acted upon three years later) that 20-40% of users are more likely to suffer cardiovascular disease such as a heart attack or stroke.  Talk to your GP if you are on this about changing your medication.
