Invokana (Ivokamet) is a type 2 diabetes drug manufactured by Janssen Research & Development, LLC. 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 is a SGLT2 inhibitor approved by the Food & Drug Administration in 2013 designed to improve glycemic control and lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
However, in May 2015, the FDA warned that Invokana treatments may put patients at risk for a serious health conditions, including Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA), which occurs when the cells do not receive the glucose needed by your body for energy. As a result, the body begins to burn fat for energy and produces ketones. When ketones build up in your blood, it becomes more acidic and can poison your body. This can lead to diabetic coma, heart attack, blood clots, and kidney failure.
