OTTAWA, ONTARIO — On October 16, 2015, Health Canada released a Summary Safety Review for sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors, otherwise known as SGLT2 inhibitors. This safety review was done to evaluate the potential risk associated with using these types of medications, which include drugs like Forxiga, and also the often scrutinized Invokana. In the report, Health Canada identified a link between these medications and acute kidney injuries.
This new report comes only months after the US Food & Drug Administration released a safety communication stating that drugs like Invokana may lead to an increased risk of diabetic ketoacidosis, a condition that can be fatal if not treated timely. Although it is more common in patients who suffer from type 1 diabetes, diabetic ketoacidosis can lead to acute kidney failure. Kidney failure, if not treated by medical professionals immediately, can be fatal.
According to the report, Health Canada is working with medication manufacturers on an update to the labels of their medications in Canada. United States medication labels remain the same, as the drugs continue to be monitored by the FDA.
