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.
