Invokana (Invokamet) is a type 2 diabetes medicine manufactured by Janssen Research & Development, LLC.
The drug is a SGLT2 inhibitor used in combination with diet and exercise to improve glycemic control and lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Diabetes is a leading cause of death in the United States and leads to serious medical problems, including kidney failure, blindness, heart disease and other health issues.
Invokana was approved by the Food & Drug Administration on March 29, 2013 for treatment of type 2 diabetes. However, in May 2015, the FDA warned in a safety communication that these drug treatments may put patients at risk for a serious health condition known as ketoacidosis.
Ketoacidosis (DKA) occurs when the cells do not receive the glucose needed by your body for energy and the body begins to burn fat for energy, which produces ketones. When ketones build up in your blood, it becomes more acidic and can poison your body.
Diabetic ketoacidosis can lead to serious health problems, including diabetic coma. Other complications include heart attack, blood clots, and kidney failure.
