Possible Metformin Bladder Cancer Risk
In September 2019, an independent lab reported that it had found levels of the NDMA (N-Nitrosodimethylamine) in Metformin, the world’s most commonly prescribed medication for treating type 2 diabetes. Voluntary Metformin recalls followed, and the Food and Drug Administration announced that it was investigating the issue.
NDMA-contaminated Metformin may cause cancer, including bladder cancer.
Does Metformin Cause Bladder Cancer?
NDMA contamination in Metformin is particularly concerning because NDMA is a “probable carcinogen,” meaning the chemical may cause cancer in humans. NDMA is actually used to cause cancer in laboratory rats. Organizations such as the World Health Organization, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have all issued reports warning that NDMA may cause cancer.
Metformin bladder cancer risk is particularly acute. In 2011, a study by the Canadian government concluded there was evidence of a “cause and effect” relationship between NDMA and bladder cancer and leukemia.
So, while a definitive causal relationship between Metformin and bladder cancer has not yet been established, scientific evidence suggests that there is a link between bladder cancer and NDMA, which has been found in Metformin.
Those taking Metformin are encouraged to consult with their doctor about the potential Metformin bladder cancer risk. For more information on Metformin recalls, please visit the FDA’s Metformin recalls page.
