Invokana (Ivokamet) drug lawsuits are being filed throughout the United States against the drug maker, Janssen Research & Development, LLC. Invokana is a type 2 diabetes medicine (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 can lead to a number of serious medical conditions and even death.
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 the medication may put patients at risk for a serious health condition known as diabetic 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 the bloodstream, the blood becomes more acidic and can poison your body. Diabetic ketoacidosis can lead to serious health problems, including:
- Diabetic coma
- Heart attack & cardiovascular problems
- Blood clots
- Kidney failure & renal damage
