DKA is a condition that requires immediate urgent medical attention.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and yeast infections occur in about 4 to 11 percent of patients taking an SGLT2 inhibitor. These infections can escalate into serious blood and kidney infections that require hospitalization. Data has indicated that Invokana and Farxiga may be associated with an increased risk of acute kidney injury.
What Is Type 2 Diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is the most common kind of diabetes. It is also called noninsulin-dependent diabetes and used to be called adult-onset diabetes, but with an increase in childhood obesity, type-2 diabetes is increasingly seen in children as well as adults. It is a chronic condition that affects the body’s ability to process glucose (sugar) to create energy. In type-2 diabetes, either the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, the hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into the cells, or it is resistant to the effects of insulin. There is no cure, but type-2 diabetes can often be controlled with diet and exercise. However, when diet and exercise fail, medicine may be necessary.
