BONE FRACTURES FROM AVANDIA USE
Analyzing data from ADOPT Study in Type 2 diabetes show women on rosiglitazone (Avandia) experienced more fractures in their upper arm, hands and feet. This is different from osteoporosis fractures which occur in hips and spine. Men do not suffer the same side effect. It is recommended women users of Avandia be more vigilant on their bone health.
