SGLT-2 Inhibitors





This is just a quick note about a new class of drugs that have been approved for use with Type 2 diabetes.  The class is called SGLT-2 inhibitors.  In the United States the drug is named Invokana.

I don't normally talk about new drugs but I was reading about it (and you can read about it here) and found this YouTube video, which is a bit amusing.  

By the way, it is also being studied for those with Type 1 diabetes although not approved for use yet.



Have a terrific 4th of July.  Be safe!

Thanks for reading!
