SGLT2 Inhibitor Side Effects

Diabetes Drug Invokana® or Related Drugs Linked to Diabetic Ketoacidosis by FDA


Invokana, a prescription drug used to control blood sugar in patients with Type 2 diabetes, has been linked to serious complications including ketoacidosis and kidney failure. In May 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning which stated that the sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor medication, used to treat diabetes, may be linked to an increased risk of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA).  According to research by the FDA, SGLT2 drugs such as Invokana, Invokamet, Farxiga, Xigduo XR, Jardiance, or Glyxambi, have been used by patients who have been diagnosed with DKA. Potentially fatal complications can be detected by the following symptoms:  difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and unusual fatigue.
