Abstract

ABSTRACT: Canagliflozin is a sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor for patients with type 2 diabetes and can be given as monotherapy or in combination with other agents, including insulin. Taken orally once daily, canagliflozin can reduce weight and BP, but has been associated with genital mycotic infections.
