Drugs That Help the Heart - SGLT-2
Category: /Health/Check out the article Newer type 2 diabetes drugs show heart protective quality in study accessible at http://finance.yahoo.com/news/newer-type-2-diabetes-drugs-181553905.html
Here is an excerpt:
The study, which analyzed data from more than 300,000 type 2 diabetes patients collected from six countries, found the SGLT-2 drugs slashed the combined risk of hospitalization for heart failure and death from any cause by 46 percent.
The data was obtained from real-world sources, such as medical records, claims databases and national registers.
Most patients were taking Farxiga or Invokana with less than 10 percent on Jardiance. The comparator medicines included a wide variety of diabetes treatments, including metformin, DPP-4 inhibitors, such as Merck & Co's Januvia, and insulin, among others.
I'm surprised to see that metformin is one of the medications that SGLT-2s outperformed, and I wonder is SGLT-2 have any other benefits beside improved heart health. Leave a comment to tell us what you think.
