The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that the type 2 diabetes medicines canagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and empagliflozin may lead to ketoacidosis, a serious condition where the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones that may require hospitalization.
Ketoacidosis is a very serious illness that can even trigger coma or death. The warning signs of Ketoacidosis include:
