The type 2 diabetes drug Invokana has recently made headlines for potential associations with serious complications. Among those complications is the risk of diabetic coma. Patients who take Invokana to manage their diabetes are at a greater risk of falling into a diabetic coma. Claims are currently being investigated against the makers of Invokana for failing to produce a safe and reliable drug. You may be entitled to a settlement if you have been harmed by this medication.
Understanding Diabetic Coma
There are generally three ways diabetes patients can become susceptible to diabetic coma. They are:
- Severely low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). This occurs in people with type 1 diabetes.
- Diabetic hyperosmolar syndrome. This occurs in type 2 diabetes.
- Diabetic ketoacidosis
Diabetic comas from Invokana are caused by diabetic ketoacidosis. This is a condition that occurs when the body cannot break down glucose (sugar) to use as energy because it lacks insulin, so it burns fat cells instead. When fat cells are broken down, they produce a chemical called ketones. When too many ketones are produced and enter the blood stream, they become toxic to the body. If this condition is not treated in a timely manner, a diabetic coma may be the consequence.
