Ketoacidosis May Lead to Diabetic Coma
Although diabetic ketoacidosis typically develops slowly, it can be serious if left untreated. The dangerous combination of low blood sugar, dehydration, shock, and extreme fatigue could result in a diabetic coma.
While Invokana has, to date, not been the subject of any known recalls, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is asking patients who are prescribed the drug to exercise caution, in part because of its link to the development of ketoacidosis. The agency advises that patients be wary of any symptoms of ketoacidosis, which may include breathing issues, abdominal pain, exhaustion, or confusion.
