SGLT2 Inhibitors and Ketoacidosis

Ketoacidosis is a serious medical condition that most often affects people with Type 1 diabetes. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received 20 reports of acidosisincluding ketoacidosis, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), and ketosis among Type 2 diabetics taking SGLT2 inhibitors, a class of drugs that includes Invokana and Invokamet.

In May 2015, the FDA issued a drug safety communication that warned health care professionals and patients about a possible link between SGLT2 inhibitors and ketoacidosis requiring hospitalization.

According to the FDA, ketoacidosis among Type 2 diabetics treating with SGLT2 inhibitors may be triggered by:

  • Serious illness
  • Reduced food and fluid intake
  • Reduced insulin dose

Ketoacidosis Symptoms

Signs of ketoacidosis include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Confusion
  • Dehydration
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Weight loss

Seek immediate medical treatment if you exhibit these signs while taking an SGLT2 inhibitor. Left untreated, ketoacidosis can result in coma or even death. .
