Drug Injury Lawyers Protect Diabetes Patients
Invokana is a recently approved Johnson & Johnson drug designed to treat diabetes. It claims to work by releasing sugar from the blood through the kidneys and bladder, thus controlling blood-sugar levels. However, the drug has some major side effects, particularly among patients with a high risk for cardiovascular disease.
Other effects of Invokana include:
- Yeast infections
- Decreased kidney function
- Increase in bone fractures
- Raised acid levels in the blood
One study showed that 13 patients with cardiovascular disease who took Invokana suffered a major stroke, heart failure, or heart attack in the first 30 days of taking it. Of the placebo-taking patients, only one suffered a heart issue of any kind. Despite these findings, the drug has no warnings regarding its use by those with cardiovascular problems.
