Ketoacidosis side effects from Invokana® may be extreme. It may be in your best interest to speak to the harmful drug lawyers at the Hollis Law Firm today.
Patients suffering from diabetes rely on medication to control the levels of glucose in their bloodstream. Victims of Type 1 diabetes rely on insulin just like patients with Type 2 diabetes do. Although, there is a new solution to those suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are designed to help balance sugar levels in the blood for those suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals created Invokana® as a SGLT2 inhibitor solution. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the new SGLT2 inhibitor, Invokana, in 2013 for medical use. The FDA approved Invokana under the understanding that Invokana was not to be used with patients with Type 1 diabetes and that it caused only mild, non life-threatening side effects.
Two years and two months after the drug was approved, the FDA issued a drug safety warning. Ketoacidosis side effects from Invokana were being reported. Ketoacidosis is a dangerous condition when the patient’s body begins to shut down from drastically increased levels of ketones in their blood. When too many ketones build up in the blood, they become toxic.
What else besides ketoacidosis side effects from Invokana are causing the drug safety warning?
