What are the risks associated with Invokana?
Invokana is a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, and is prescribed by doctors to treat patients with Type 2 diabetes. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in March of 2013. The drug is designed to stop glucose from being reabsorbed into the blood.
In May of 2015, the FDA warned that Invokana can cause ketoacidosis, which is a condition in which the body produces a dangerous amount of ketones. High levels of ketones make the patient’s blood more acidic, and can poison the body. Ketoacidosis can lead to severe dehydration, diabetic coma, kidney failure, heart attack, or even death.
