Diabetes Drug Infection Lawsuit News

Please do not make the mistake of Googling images of "Fournier's Gangrene" because the pictures will cause nightmares

Saturday, December 22, 2018 - I recently made the terrible mistake of impulsively clicking the images tab in Google when researching Fournier's gangrene and was taken to pictures too horrifying for description. After a good head shake I quickly got back on my research track and found that my shock at the physical manifestation of the disease is not uncommon., a well-known and widely respected magazine and online journal for men's health issues recently took up the topic of Fournier's gangrene and quickly realized that it may be the most hideous medical condition in the world. In an article entitled: "What Is Fournier's Gangrene? Honestly, You Don't Wanna Know," the magazine acknowledges the horrors of the disease. The "flesh-eating" disease is bad enough. Now picture a flesh-eating disease engulfing a person's genitals all the way to the anus and beyond. While the US Food and Drug Administration has recently reported 12 and possibly the 13th case of Fournier's, has uncovered that the South American Medical Journal has treated 44 patients with Fournier's gangrene over the last five years. Diabetes drug infection lawsuits are being filed by affected patients with the flesh eating disease Fournier gangrene.

Fournier's gangrene is a form of necrotizing fasciitis or bacterial infection that enters the bloodstream through small cracks in the skin. The disease is more common in men than in women as the testicles tend to trap bacteria. Fournier's gangrene is very rare affecting less than 2 out of every 100000 people and some think the disease is due to excessive masturbation which is ridiculous. Some doctors say that they have seen the disease develop in men that shave and cut their genital area. The disease is known to start in the perineum area the tract of real estate between the scrotum and the anus.

Fournier's symptoms start with a genital infection and pain, soreness, tenderness, redness or purpleness and swelling of the scrotum. The pain will be immediate and will get continually worse. The tissue death is not limited to the genitals and can spread to other areas of the body. Deaths from Fournier's are estimated at about 20%. Those unlucky enough to survive the disease may require genital amputation and may have to use a catheter to remove urine.

Today a more common cause of the disease is the anti-diabetes medications called sodium-glucose transporters (SGLT2)s that are given to diabetes patients to control the blood's glucose levels. The FDA identified the following diabetes drugs as those responsible for causing Fournier's. found that "Brand and generic names of SGLT2 inhibitors and combination products that contain SGLT2 inhibitors include canagliflozin (Invokana), dapagliflozin (Farxiga), empagliflozin (Jardiance), empagliflozin/linagliptin (Glyxambi), empagliflozin/metformin (Synjardy), and dapagliflozin/metformin (Xigduo XR)."

A Florida nursing home patient recently died from necrotizing fasciitis of the genitals and officials have as of yet failed to make the connection to Fournier's gangrene. The patient was severely neglected by the nursing home and also taking anti-diabetic drugs that could have, according to the FDA, contributed to the development of the disease.
