Farxiga and
Ketoacidosis

Farxiga (generic: dapagliflozin) is a type 2 diabetes medication that is taken orally to keep blood sugar levels steady. It uses SGLT2 inhibitors to help the kidneys get rid of extra glucose in the bloodstream and prevent them from absorbing this excess glucose. Glucose inhibited from entering the bloodstream exits the body via urine, lowering the patient’s blood glucose levels.

Since the drug’s approval in 2014, the FDA has issued warnings associated with Farxiga and other SGLT2 inhibitors that these drugs can cause a life-threatening condition: ketoacidosis. If this happened to you, you may want to consider a Farxiga lawsuit. Our team at GoldenbergLaw can help.
