Among one of the newest drug classes are sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors are normally prescribed to those suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition that develops over time, and it affects how a person’s body absorbs and controls glucose levels in the blood. As a treatment for those with Type 2 diabetes, SGLT2 inhibitors, like Invokana, are designed to help patients with Type 2 diabetes manage their symptoms. Shortly after SGLT2 inhibitors hit the market, the U.S. Federal Drug and Administration (FDA) warned the public that SGLT2 inhibitors, like Invokana, may cause diabetic ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition where the patient’s body shuts down from dangerously high ketone levels in the blood.
Different people may experience the same or different symptoms of ketoacidosis such as:
- High glucose levels in the blood
- Fruity scent to the breath
- Increased levels of thirst and urination
