What is Steglatro?

Steglatro is used in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar levels helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, neurological problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper diabetes management can also reduce your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Ertugliflozin works by increasing the elimination of sugar by the kidneys.

How does it work?

Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which your body does not make enough insulin, or the insulin your body makes does not work as well as it should. It may also be that your body produces too much sugar. When this occurs, sugar (glucose) builds up in the blood, which can cause serious medical problems, such as heart disease, kidney disease, blindness, and poor circulation. Ertugliflozin works by blocking the SGLT2 protein in your kidneys. This causes the sugar in your blood to pass through your urine.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Steglatro belongs to a group of medicines called sodium and glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2).
