Invokana

Invokana

Invokana is a drug that works to lower the body’s blood sugar levels by stopping the kidneys from reabsorbing blood glucose. As opposed to the blood glucose remaining in the body, it is removed with the body’s urine. Invokana is a sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, which is a group of drugs the FDA-approved to treat low blood sugar in adults with Type 2 diabetes. Over 100 lawsuits presently await trial against Invokana in federal and state courts from users who have suffered diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney problems, and/or leg for foot amputations.

Side Effects of Invokana

  • Diabetic ketoacidosis
  • Renal failure and acute kidney injuries, even in those without a history of kidney problems
  • Stroke
  • Urinary tract infections, resulting in either blood or kidney infections
  • Increased risk of leg and foot amputations

If you or a loved one took Invokana and suffered ketoacidosis, kidney injury, another type of unforeseen injury, or death you may have cause for legal action.
