If you are taking Invokana® and have experienced ketoacidosis side effects due to your SGLT2 inhibitor, you may want to speak to an Invokana lawyer at the Hollis Law Firm today.
There is a newer class of drugs designed to help those patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes called sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. Type 2 diabetes occurs when a patient is born with the ability to handle blood sugar levels naturally and then due to various lifestyle and genetic factors, the patient’s body loses the ability to naturally balance blood glucose levels. Some factors that might cause Type 2 diabetes include obesity, genetics, too much glucose in the liver, and metabolic syndrome. One of the newer SGLT2 inhibitors on the market is called Invokana®. Invokana was developed by Johnson & Johnson, known for producing Band-Aids® and baby powder.
Some patients that have taken Invokana have experienced ketoacidosis as a side effect. Ketoacidosis is the medical term for when too many ketones are present in the blood and it causes a toxic effect. Depending on the severity of the ketoacidosis, it may result in coma or even death. In addition to ketoacidosis, patients also report less severe side effects such as shortness of breath and frequent urination.
