FDA Drug Safety Communication: FDA confirms increased risk of leg and foot amputations with the diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR)
Based on new data from two large clinical trials, FDA has concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR) causes an increased risk of leg and foot amputations. We are requiring new warnings, including our most prominent Boxed Warning, to be added to the canagliflozin drug labels to describe this risk. Patients taking canagliflozin should notify your health care professionals right away if you develop new pain or tenderness, sores or ulcers, or infections in your legs or feet. Talk to your healthcare professional if you have questions or concerns. Do not stop taking your diabete...

Quick tips for diabetic foot ulcer wound care
If you have diabetes, you know you're more prone to injury than the average patient. Foot ulcers are especially common for those with diabetes – and can unfortunately lead to hospitalization or infection. In fact, 14 to 24 percent of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer will need an amputation, according to American Podiatric Medical Association. The reason foot ulcers tend to prey on diabetic patients is because the condition causes reduced circulation in the extremities, often leading to neuropathy. This lack of feeling makes it difficult for diabetic patients to recognize the pain before the sore be...
