Invokana & The Risk of Amputation
Type-2 diabetes is a disease that can lead to a common problem known as "diabetic foot". Diabetes disease destroys the nerve endings in feet and hardens the blood vessels that carry blood to the toes. Canagliflozin the active drug in Invokana was the first in a new class of type-2 diabetes drugs to work by forcing the kidneys to remove more sugar from the body in urine. Recent reports from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are warning patient's prescribed SGLT2 inhibitors such as Invokana doubles the risk of amputations in diabetic foot disease. These warnings from the FDA were released after two large clinical trials starting in 2009 reported that approximately 7 amputations per 1,000 patients on Canaglifozin versus 3 amputations per 1,000 with patients on a placebo, this result in fact doubled the risk of amputation.
