Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. At the bottom of the article on my website, there's a link to the original journal article if you want to start there.

NOOO. I love Byetta for our diabetes patients. It's been a miracle drug for so many!! I have not heard this news yet, so I'll have to do a bit more research when I get to work on Monday. :( That's crappy.

I've just come across some disturbing news that Januvia and Byetta (diabetes drugs which enhance the action of glucagon-like-peptide 1 activity) have been causing pancreatitis, other pancreas abnormalities and potentially cancer in rats who were given it for just 12 weeks.

I know a lot of women with PCOS take these drugs or similar if they have poor blood glucose level control.

I've written an article about it on my website if anyone wants further information:
