    Default U.S. FDA warns of foot, leg amputations with J&J diabetes drug

    Johnson & Johnson is required to add new warnings to its diabetes drug, Invokana, about the risk of foot and leg amputations, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday.
    Final results from two clinical trials showed leg and foot amputations occurred about twice as often in patients with type 2 diabetes treated with Invokana, known also as canagliflozin, as those given a placebo, the FDA said in an announcement posted on its website.
    The warnings include a boxed warning, reserved for the most serious possible adverse events, the FDA said.

    Pharmacophobia is the fear of taking pharmaceutical medication. Medications like Invokana will cause many to develop pharmacophobia!! Seriously, why is this stuff still on the market? Oh, I know....$$$$$$$$

    These these diabetes medications make me crazy. The same with bariatric surgery. Type two diabetes is a lifestyle condition that can be reversed inexpensively with simple lifestyle changes, like eliminating sugar and grains and increasing physical activity. You will not read this in any literature originating from the pharmaceutical industry, of course.
