Invokana Lawsuit Attorney in Philadelphia

Serving Victims of Dangerous Drugs Nationwide

According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), a new class of medication - SGLT2 inhibitors – may lead to serious health complications, illness, and even death. As one of the most common SGLT2 inhibitors, Invokana, has fallen under public scrutiny. In May 2015, the FDA issued a warning that Invokana and medications like it may create too much acid in the patient’s blood.

What is Invokana?

Invokana is used to treat Type 2 Diabetes. As with most medications, its manufacturer warns users to watch out for side effects. Common side effects include low blood sugar, increased urination, urinary tract infections, and more. Unfortunately, this drug may be linked to another condition, diabetic ketoacidosis, which will lead to eventual death if left untreated.

What is diabetic ketoacidosis?

According to the FDA, diabetic ketoacidosis occurs when the body produces high levels of blood acids. These are called ketones. In the safety announcement, the FDA stated diabetic ketoacidosis may require hospitalization.
