Being the class of type 2 diabetes drug known as sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, the medicine helps to maintain the insulin level in the body. Major renal problems, vision loss, and heart issues can occur if the body has improper glucose level. Patients already suffering from bladder infections, urination problems or diabetic foot ulcer or amputation should tell the physician before being treated with Invokana.
Unfortunately, this popular diabetes medicine has a lot of serious side effects which if not treated timely can cause irreversible damage. Invokana lawsuit update allows plaintiffs to argue on points such as:
- the medicine is unreasonably dangerous and defective
- the manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson has been negligent towards the production of this drug
- there was no proper clinical trial of this medicine which increased the chances of physical risks
- the manufacturer concealed evidence of the complications of Invokana from both the government and the public
Kidney damage, amputations and ketoacidosis are the most serious potential side effects of Invokana. Ketoacidosis, if not controlled can result in diabetic coma and eventually death. Kidney failure also has fatal consequences as improper functioning of the organs confuses the electrolyte balance in the body. Individuals taking Invokana must be careful about increased tenderness, ulcers, sores and infections in their body and should immediately notify the physicians if any such symptoms appear.
