Canaglu tablets 100 mg for type 2 diabetes (canagliflozin, Invokana)
What are Canaglu 100 mg tablets for the treatment of type 2 diabetes (canagliflozin, Invokana, Canaglu, Invokana)?
Canaglio tablets help control blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. Their active principle, canagliflozin hydrate, is an inhibitor of the sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2), a protein, which reabsorbs glucose in the kidneys. Thus, Canaglio tablets effectively reduce blood glucose levels by eliminating excess glucose in the urine.
When used together with diet and exercise, Canaglio tablets help to significantly reduce the risk of serious cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack or stroke and reduce the risk of end-stage renal disease or impaired kidney function. This medicine is particularly recommended for patients with type 2 diabetes who have heart disease or diabetic kidney disease.
