how long does it take before weight loss begins
Invokana states the average person loses about 3% of your body weight. A person weighing 200 pounds would on average lose about 6 pounds. That's not a lot of weight. I take Invokana and have for well over a year. It makes me urinate about every 2 hours unless my blood glucose level is under 120. Therefore, on days I travel or am extremely busy, I may choose to not take that one medication. Not my recommendation, just what I choose to do. The day or two following, I find I have gained 1-3 pounds. I am thinking a lot of their so-called weight loss is actually water weight. I wouldn't hang my hat on this medication helping you with weight control. Hope this helped.
