Jardiance and Diabetes Medication Attorneys in New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont

Diabetes is one of the most common diseases affecting Americans today. According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately 30 million American adults suffer from diabetes. Moreover, roughly one in four adults over the age of 65 have been afflicted with diabetes. That means there are millions of Americans who are taking diabetes medications and relying on them to perform as intended.

However, certain diabetes medications with SGLT2 inhibitors, such as Jardiance, Invokana, Farxiga, and Xigduo, were recently discovered to present a substantial risk of harm to users. This discovery led government agencies across the world, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) and Canada’s Health Canada, to strengthen its warnings about the increased risk of developing serious, even life-threatening, medical conditions when taking such diabetes medications.

Risks of Jardiance and Diabetes Medication

The FDA recently issued a safety communication about a possible link between diabetes medication and adverse outcomes such as amputations and Fournier’s Gangrene, a deadly flesh-eating genital infection. Additional risks of Jardiance and other diabetes medications with SGLT2 inhibitors include pancreatic cancer and ketoacidosis, a life-threatening medical condition characterized by the presence of excess ketoacid in the blood.
