Why do some patients have a viable Invokana side effect case, and others may not?
First of all, it is important to understand what Invokana promises to do for patients. Invokana is a SGLT2 inhibitor designed to block the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys. By stopping the reabsorption of glucose and secreting it in the urine, the amount of sugar in the blood is lowered. SGLT2 inhibitors are for patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes only. Patients suffering from Type 1 diabetes rely on insulin, while patients with Type 2 diabetes do not rely on insulin because they have developed an insulin resistance.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sent out an official warning that SGLT2 inhibitors may increase the risk of developing ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis occurs whenever a patient’s body cannot control blood sugar due to dangerously low insulin levels. As a result of low insulin, the body then starts to break down fatty acids. The breakdown of fatty acids produces ketones. Invokana has been linked to ketoacidosis and other symptoms. If you or a loved one has experienced any of the below symptoms while taking Invokana, it may be in your best interest to find out if you have a viable Invokana side effect case:
- Cardiac Arrest
- Kidney Failure
