How INVOKANA® Works | INVOKANA® (canagliflozin)

If you are interested to know about how INVOKANA® works in the body, you’ve come to the right place! This page can show you how INVOKANA® works with—and helps lower the risk to—your kidneys. Here are some of the ways that INVOKANA® helps.

Diabetes can cause too much sugar to be in your blood—and that can damage your body.

INVOKANA® works with your kidneys to stop some excess sugar from being absorbed back into your body, and to help you lose approximately 100 grams of sugar a day through the process of urination.

In people with type 2 diabetes, there is increased pressure in the glomerulus (the filtering part of the kidneys). Over time this pressure can damage the kidneys—INVOKANA® can help lower this pressure and can help to slow the progression of kidney damage.

Your kidneys are so important to healthy life—and even though they’re in danger from type 2 diabetes, you may not recognize the warning signs. Ask your doctor about your kidney health and if INVOKANA® may be right for you.
