Invokana® has been linked to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Finding an Invokana ketoacidosis lawyer at the Hollis Law Firm is one way to determine if your case is viable for compensation.
Type 2 diabetes may be brought on by poor genetics, poor diet, or lack of exercise. Once a patient is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, they are prescribed a series of medications such as insulin and others. Without these prescriptions, the patient’s risk of dying from Type 2 diabetes dramatically increases. Recently, there is a new class of drug to treat Type 2 diabetes available for patients. Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are drugs for patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Invokana® is classified under this new type of drug-class and works to block the reabsorption of sugar back into the blood. Usually, the kidneys are responsible for reabsorbing glucose back into the body. Once the sugar is reabsorbed back into the bloodstream, it is then broken down for energy.
Why are some patients searching for a helpful Invokana ketoacidosis lawyer?
Some patients are seeking a helpful Invokana ketoacidosis lawyer because they have experienced life-threatening side effects after taking Invokana. Recent studies link Invokana, Johnson & Johnson’s SGLT2 inhibitor, to the following side effects:
- Kidney failure and kidney damage
- Heart complications including cardiac arrest.
