The US Drug Watchdog says, “We are convinced the best way to determine a premature failure of DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device is a simple blood test that is focused on elevated levels of cobalt, and chromium in a recipient’s blood, and we are urging recipients to call us for more information about this blood test.” According to court records there are about 130,000 DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant device recipients in the US. The US Drug Watchdog is doing everything possible to get every DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant recipient to get this simple blood test, not only as a way to detect a metal on metal hip implant failure, but also as an incredibly smart thing to do, because there is not much research on what elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium mean to a person, aside from liver, and possible heart issues. However, elevated levels of these metal should not be taken lightly. To repeat, if a US citizen has a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant, the US Drug Watchdog is urging them to call them at 866-714-6466 about information related to a specific blood test that will measure cobalt, and chromium levels in the recipient’s blood stream.

According to the US Drug Watchdog, “Symptoms of a DePuy Pinnacle metal on metal hip implant failure include pain, problems walking, swelling of the hip, lack of flexibility, or elevated levels of cobalt, or chromium in the recipients blood.” http://USDrugWatchdog.Com
