Invokana is a pharmaceutical drug that is prescribed to people with Type 2 diabetes. In a typical person, after someone digests food, the pancreas produces insulin which breaks down sugar within the body. In people with Type 2 diabetes, their pancreas is unable to work hard enough to keep up with the need to break down sugars within the body and it causes the sugar to be absorbed into the kidneys which then causes an unsafe level of sugar in the person’s blood stream.  Invokana, and other sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors are meant to block the kidneys from taking in these sugars and releasing into the blood stream and it is released through urination. While that is benefit for someone who has Type 2 diabetes, it has been linked to some very serious side effects listed below.

Some of the side effects that we have seen in claimants are:

  • diabetic ketoacidosis;
  • acute pancreatitis;
  • blood infections;
  • urinary tract infections or UTI’s;
  • kidney injury;
  • various cardiovascular problems
