What is the connection between Invokana and Ketoacidosis?
Invokana is prescribed by doctors to patients with Type 2 Diabetes to help control blood sugar levels. However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning that Invokana can trigger dangerous levels of blood acids, or ketones.
Invokana belongs to a class of medications called SGLT2 Inhibitors. SGLT2 Inhibitors are designed to block the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys resulting in extra blood glucose to be excreted in the urine. In May of 2015, the FDA warned that these medications may lead to the serious condition of ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis occurs when the body cannot manage glucose levels due to low insulin. The body then burns fatty acids, leading to the production of too many blood acids, or ketones. Symptoms of ketoacidosis include abdominal pain, confusion, difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, and unusual fatigue. The FDA has warned that anyone who has taken Invokana and experienced these symptoms should go to the hospital.
