Physician Association to Study Invokana® & Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Posted on - Monday, July 6, 2015 under Dangerous Drugs & Products, Medical Malpractice Physician Association to Study Invokana® & Diabetic Ketoacidosis

National Organization to Examine Role of Invokana® in Diabetic Ketoacidosis

The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists will hold a conference in Dallas, TX this fall to examine the potential link of SLGT2 Inhibitors such as Invokana®, Farxiga®, and Jardiance® to diabetic ketoacidosis.  The conference is said to include scientists, doctors, and diabetes experts that have studied available information in an effort to provide recommendations to doctors and patients.

Invokana® was the first SLGT2 inhibitor approved by the FDA.  It is marketed as a cutting edge drug in the fight against Type 2 Diabetes. Invokana® is only approved to treat Type 2 Diabetes at this juncture.  However, Invokana® was a highly criticized approval by the FDA, some going so far as to call Invokana® a “Questionable New Diabetes Drug.”

FDA Warns of Possible Invokana® Link to Diabetic Ketoacidosis

The FDA released a safety warning in May, 2015 warning of the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis while on Invokana®, Farxiga®, Jardiance®, and the other SLGT2 Inhibitors.  While not a recall of these drugs, the warning was significant in that it noted 20 instances of diabetic ketoacidosis, ketoacidosis, or ketosis over a one year period.  All of these disorders are potentially deadly.
