Glyxambi Linked to Pancreatitis and Diabetic Ketoacidosis

What is Glyxambi?

Manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim and released in February 2015, Glyxambi is a unique combination of two other Type 2 diabetes medications. It is made up of active ingredients from popular SGLT2 inhibitor, Jardiance and the active ingredient from DPP-4 inhibitor Tradjenta. Glyxambi is prescribed, along with diet and exercise for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes.

What are the risks?

Like all SGLT2 inhibitors, Glyxambi has been linked to an increased risk for the development of diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious condition in which ketones build up in the bloodstream to toxic levels. If not treated promptly, ketoacidosis can lead to swelling of the brain, coma and even death.


Because Glyxambi is combined with DPP-4 inhibitor Tradjenta, users of Glyxambi are also at risk for other serious side effects including pancreatitis, which can be deadly. Other risks and side effects include:

  • Kidney failure
  • Kidney stones
  • Yeast infections (both men and women)
  • Severe dehydration
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Unbalanced electrolytes
  • Urinary tract infections

Glyxambi Lawsuits

The FDA issued a warning concerning the link between all SGLT2 inhibitors and the risks of diabetic ketoacidosis in May 2015. In December the FDA ordered manufacturers of all SGLT2 inhibitors to add warning labels to all SGLT2 products that warned patients about the risks for the development of ketoacidosis and urinary tract infections.
