"Understand I am T2. I have to tell you Jardiance is second of three currently approved SGLT-2 inhibitors. Invokana was the first approved in March 2013. Jardiance and then Faxiga were approved in Aug and Oct 2014 respectively. I have been taking…"

"I also think it sounds like invokana. I wouldn't use any of these drugs due to their action on the kidneys. We are already at risk for kidney damage."

"Has it been studied at all with T1s? I would think another side effect might be that there would be less sugar available for your cells or maybe you would have harder hitting lows? Is your A1C kind of high?"

"Interesting. This drug sounds to me very similar to Invokana, which also inhibits the SGLT2 cotransporter. And as with Invokana, i would also expect polyurea, since Sodium will be lost as well, and whenever less sodium is reabsorbed, water will go…"
