Over the years, many treatment methods have been invented to treat type 2 diabetes. One of the most effective treatment methods in recent times is the Sodium-glucose transport protein 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, a group of drugs also referred to as gliflozins. These drugs stop blood from reabsorbing glucose that has been filtered through the kidney. That is, they increase the rate of glucose excretion in the urine. When a high amount of glucose is excreted in the urine, your blood sugar level decreases.

This article will discuss the different types of SGLT2 inhibitors, the side effects of adding them to your treatment program, and their advantages.
