Amputation Risk & Ketoacidosis Associated with SGLT2 Inhibitor Diabetes Drugs
SGLT2 inhibitors have been associated with severe side effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued safety communications regarding their link to an increased amputation risk and ketoacidosis.
- In May of 2015, the FDA reported that patients who take SGLT2 inhibitors may develop ketoacidosis, a condition that occurs when there is a lack of insulin in the body, leading to a potentially fatal acid buildup. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, and tiredness. SGLT2 inhibitors were also linked to kidney infections, blood infections, and urinary tract infections.
- According to a May 2017 FDA Drug Safety Communication, canagliflozin (marketed as Invokamet®, Invokana®, and Invokamet XR®) is associated with an increased risk of toe, foot, or leg amputations. The FDA required manufacturers to place Boxed Warnings on canagliflozin products.
