Pharmacological information of ampagliflozin

Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, it can lead to a condition called diabetes mellitus. People with diabetes need treatment to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people have their blood sugar controlled by making changes in their diet, but to control their blood sugar in others, medications such as ampagliflozin are prescribed in addition to changing their diet and exercising regularly.

Empagliflozin affects the kidneys and increases the sugar that the body transports to the urine, lowering blood sugar levels.
