Official Answer by Drugs.com 7 Mar 2018

Steglatro (ertugliflozin) is an oral sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor used with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes. The SGLT2 inhibitors block the kidney from reabsorbing sugar (glucose), which is then eliminated in the urine and lowers blood sugar.
