I was on dapagliflozin for a while. This family of drugs causes the kidneys to filter out of your urine some of the glucose it would normally put back into the blood. It is reasonably well tolerated but it can increase the risk of a UTI. It works well on glucose level and does not force the body to produce insulin like gliclazide - along with possible hypos and weight gain.


Osidge thanks for your reply I’ve started on 10 mg and check up after 3 months.
