It saddens me to hear such news but reality bites. My dad has diabetes and ever since he was diagnosed, he's not been too careful about making his sugar level checked. Right now, I worry about his diet and we're working it out starting with a glucometer which would measure his blood glucose though a tiny prick on his finger. He says it barely hurts at all... that's a good news.

By the way, if you know someone who took or taking Actos, you might want to share this link to them http://www.rotlaw.com/actos

The page talks about how Actos ended up to being linked to bladder cancer.
