Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors can cause severe side effects

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors like Invokana are drugs created to help people with type 2 diabetes by lowering the user's blood sugar levels by causing the kidneys to excrete glucose through the urine.

However, studies have shown that user's kidneys are also excreting other crucial things that are causing severe, and sometimes life threatening side effects. If you or a loved one is using Invokana, you may be at risk.
