Need A Lawyer For A Invokana Lawsuit?
Diabetes is a disease that isn’t going away anytime soon. This metabolic disorder essentially starves your cells by inhibiting the pancreas’s ability to release the insulin that would normally allow your body to use glucose as energy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 29 million Americans have diabetes and 25 percent of them don’t even realize it.
Many of the people who don’t realize they have diabetes have what’s called type 2 diabetes, a condition in which they may not produce enough insulin and/or may not be able to properly use the insulin they produce. Another 86 million have something called pre-diabetes and as many as 30 percent of these people will develop type 2 diabetes within the next 5 years.
SGLT2 Warnings from the FDA
The worst part about it is that this isn’t necessarily coming as a surprise. When Invokana manufacturers conducted clinical trials they found that there were twice as many leg and foot amputations in the group taking Invokana than in the group taking a placebo.
Added warnings issued to doctors on the Invokana packaging could have made all the difference in the world to patients. But it wasn’t until 2015 that the FDA stepped in and demanded warning labels be added to SGLT2 packaging. This was far too late for thousands of patients who’d already been taking the drug, something that hundreds of families filing wrongful death claims and losses from pain and suffering can tell you.
Invokana, a sodium-glucose cotrasnporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, was designed to help treat type 2 diabetes by rescuing the glucose absorbed by the kidneys so that it can instead work to reduce blood glucose levels. But rather than helping those with type 2 diabetes, SGLT2s like Invokana, Farxiga, Jardiance and Glyxambi are instead fostering dangerous side effects and causing too much acid to accumulate in the blood—a condition called diabetic ketoacidosis. Some taking Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors suffer from kidney failure, heart attack, and eventually, death.
