SGLt2i in diabetic type 2

Details and patient eligibility


To detect the efficacy of SGLT2i in improving the metabolic parameters in patients with type 2 diabetes. - To detect the side-effects of SGLT2i

Full description

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a worldwide health problem, with a continuously increasing prevalence . Good management of blood glucose level is critical to delay progression of the underlying metabolic dysfunction and to reduce the risk of diabetic complications . Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) are a new class of antidiabetic drug acting by increasing urinary glucose excretion. First approved in 2014, SGLT2i have been widely used to treat patients with type 2 diabetes They are effective in reducing blood glucose, and surprisingly have shown benefits beyond glycaemic control . Physicians have reported improved hypertension, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, fatty liver disease and obesity However, SGLT inhibitors are not magical drugs, and their use is not free of side effects ( Reported side effects include urinary tract infections, genital infection, dehydration, and hypotension, plus the usual side effects of antidiabetic medications as hypoglycemia . The optimum practical guideline for adding SGLT2 inhibitors to treatment regimens of patients with diabetes is controversial .Many local guidelines and treatment policies exist, yet we need to develop our own local policy at Assiut University hospitals to suit our patients needs and expectations, balancing between efficacy and side effects.
