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

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.

medication containing SGLT2 inhibitors, you may be entitled to compensation.
