how does INVOKANA® work?

INVOKANA® works with your kidneys to help you lose some sugar—about 100 grams a day—through the process of urination. Talk to your doctor about whether INVOKANA® is right for you. Our downloadable INVOKANA® fact sheet can help you make the most of your next appointment.

type 2 diabetes 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.
  • INVOKANA® works with your kidneys to remove some excess sugar through urination.

Although INVOKANA® is not for weight loss, it may help you lose weight—on average 2-3%. Results may vary by dose and when used alone or with certain other diabetes medications.
