sugar and the kidneys
The kidneys work to keep your blood clean and chemically balanced.
The kidneys also filter glucose (sugar) from the blood and return it back to the body for use as energy.
In a person with type 2 diabetes, the blood flowing into the kidneys already contains a high level of sugar, which is then reabsorbed back into the body.
Over time this excess sugar can lead to serious problems, and damage many parts of the body.
INVOKANA® works with your kidneys to remove some excess sugar through urination.
Less sugar in the body over time can help reduce the complications and damage that can come with type 2 diabetes.
Although INVOKANA® is not for weight loss or systolic blood pressure, it may help with both.
Weight loss on average 2–3%. Lowered systolic blood pressure on average 3–5 mmHg. Results may vary by dose and when used alone or with metformin, sitagliptin, or insulin.
