SGLT-2 inhibitors

What are SGLT-2 inhibitors

Selective sodium-glucose transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors are a class of oral hypoglycemics used in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. These agents lower the renal glucose threshold, resulting in an increased amount of glucose being excreted in the urine.

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
