According to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control, more than 29 million Americans suffer from diabetes, and nearly one in four people with the disease aren't even aware that they have it. With so many people suffering from both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Big Pharma saw an opportunity to make a huge profit. America’s Lawyer Mike Papantonio discusses Invokana, a diabetes drug that's causing as much harm, if not more than the actual disease that it was supposed to treat.

According to latest data from the Centers for Disease Control, more than 29-million Americans suffer from diabetes, and nearly one of four people with the disease aren't even aware that they have it. Even worse, as many as 86-million Americans currently suffer from pre-diabetes, and if preemptive measures aren't taken they too will be diagnosed with full blown diabetes in a matter of years. With so many people suffering from both type one and type two diabetes, Big Pharma saw an opportunity to make a huge profit. In the rush to cash in on the diabetic epidemic they cut corners. They created a product that's causing as much harm, if not more, than the actual disease itself. That product is called Invokana.

Invokana was developed by Janssen, an offshoot of Johnson & Johnson. Unlike other diabetes medications that are designed to help the body produce more insulin to metabolize sugar, Invokana actually forces the body to filter sugar out of the blood by the kidneys and then the sugar is expelled as waste. As a result of that the body loses carbohydrates that it needs to function. The kidneys become overworked and could eventually shut down, and the body goes into a form of survivor mode where it begins to break down body fat to compensate the loss of that sugar. The condition is known as Ketoacidosis. It's deadly.

Diabetic Ketoacidosis occurs when the body begins to break itself down for energy, and it creates a dangerously high level of acid in the bloodstream. This condition is extremely painful and the patient can end up losing control over their bodily functions, their kidneys could shut down completely and they can die.

On May 15th, 2015 the FDA warned consumers about the increased risk of Ketoacidosis from Invokana, so Janssen was put on notice that their medication was extremely dangerous for patients. This wasn't the first time the FDA had expressed concerns over Invokana. The drug was approved in 2013, and it was only approved by the FDA by a margin of one vote. Members of the approval committee were concerned about the safety of the drug, but they voted eight to seven to put it on the market anyway. Janssen wasn't about to let their cash cow go away. After all, the drug was pulling in more than one-billion dollars a year for the company.

They tried to use Ketoacidosis in their favor telling doctors that patients might even lose weight if they take the drug. In other words, they told patients that this disease was good news, really. They didn't bother to tell doctors that the weight loss was due to the fact that patients' body would begin metabolizing itself in a horrendous way. All Janssen saw were big profits, and those dollar signs always trump the warning signs.
