Invokana and Invokamet, two drugs used to treat Type II diabetes in adults,
have been linked to a higher risk of amputation, diabetic ketoacidosis,
and other complications. According to recent studies, patients who took
Invokana or Invokamet were two times as likely to require foot or toe
amputation compared to individuals who did not take the drug. Additionally,
the risk of complications like ketoacidosis or ketosis was shown to increase
with regular use of the drug.
If you or a loved one took Invokana or Invokamet for Type II diabetes and
suffered serious, life-altering, or fatal effects, the dangerous and defective
drug attorneys at Hare Wynn can help you fight for your rights. We are

II diabetes and suffered diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) resulting in hospitalization and/or a
catastrophic injury relating to DKA, including death, sepsis/septic shock, or a severe cardiovascular
event after taking these drugs.
