Abstract

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors have a unique mechanism of action in the kidneys that causes glucosuria, which lowers plasma glucose. They are also associated with reduced body weight and BP, and a low incidence of hypoglycemia. This article reviews the pharmacologic profiles and clinical implications of canagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and empagliflozin.
