    To reduce the risk of high blood sugar levels, some doctors prescribe Invokana®. Invokana® works by helping  the kidneys remove glucose from the blood stream. Individuals with high blood sugar levels have a greater risk of being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.  If an individual doesn’t treat type 2 diabetes, they could suffer from serious conditions like nerve and kidney damage or possible vision problems.

    Since the launch of Invokana® in 2013, many pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, and marketers, have failed to warn physicians of the increased health risks of this drug. These risks include:
    •    Kidney failure
    •    Bone fractures
    •    Heart attacks
    •    Ketoacidosis

    Ketoacidosis is when the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones. High levels of ketones can eventually lead to diabetic comas, extended hospitalization periods, and even death.The FDA released a warning in May of 2015 saying that Invokana®  could cause ketoacidosis. After recent clinical trials, the FDA also confirmed evidence that Invokana® increases the risk of bone fracture. If you or a loved one have suffered side effects from the use of Invokana®, you should hire a personal injury lawyer to help you with your case.
