Diabetes? Check Out this New Drug

Table of Contents

Synjardy is a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It combines two proven complementary diabetes medications, empagliflozin (Jardiance) and metformin, that are, on their own, ways of managing diabetes and, in combination, represent an improved form of diabetes care.

Empagliflozin (Jadiance) is an SGLT2 inhibitor, a relatively new category of treatment for type 2 diabetes used to remove excess sugar from the body through urination. Metformin is the go-to drug prescribed when people first develop type 2 diabetes as it lowers glucose production in the liver and also causes the intestines to absorb less glucose. Drugs can’t succeed on their own, which is why it’s advised to combine treatment with diet and physical activity to avoid the health problems that can come from elevated sugar levels when living with type 2 diabetes, including heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.

Synjardy allows you to benefit from both drugs to lower both A1C and blood sugar. Clinical trials have shown that people taking Jardiance (empagliflozin) in addition to Metformin benefited from A1C reductions of 0.7% and 0.8% compared to just 0.1% when taking just Metformin alone. (modafinil) This makes Synjardy an excellent option for those looking to combine their Metformin with another drug for extra effectiveness.

Controlling high blood sugar prevents kidney damage, nerve problems, blindness and other serious problems.

An extra perk of taking Synjardy is that though it is not specifically intended for it, it helps with weight loss and blood pressure control.

Heart disease and diabetes

Diabetes can become a life-threatening disease if it’s not controlled, especially since it has a powerful effect on the heart. That’s why it’s important to keep your blood sugar levels within a safe and healthy range and your heart healthy. Finding the proper medication can save your life.

Statistics strongly show a correlation between diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Adults with type two diabetes are two to four times more likely to die from heart disease than adults without diabetes. This is because people with diabetes generally suffer from high blood pressure or abnormal levels of cholesterol. Additionally, obesity, smoking, and lack of physical activity are substantial risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Those who suffer from diabetes and also have one or more of the above risk factors (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, obesity, or lack of physical activity) are at a greater risk of stroke or heart disease. Yet by managing these risk factors appropriately, patients can avoid or delay heart disease. This is also a reason why it’s important to find the appropriate medication in order to control your A1C and glucose levels, thereby reducing your risk of heart attack, stroke, or blood clots. A side benefit of SGLT2 medication such as Synjardy is the effect of losing weight observed in trials, where between 3% and 5% of body weight has been recorded.

All medications cause varying side effects, so finding the best medication for your body may take some time. It is essential to regularly check your blood sugar levels to measure how effective the treatment is. The most common side effects of Synjardy include a stuffy/runny nose, sore throat, nausea, urinary tract infections and female genital infections.

Speak to your doctor to see if Synjardy could be an appropriate medication for controlling your type 2 diabetes. Synjardy is not to be used for people with type 1 diabetes and usually will not be prescribed for gestational diabetes. It is a treatment for people who have already registered elevated sugar levels, and it can prevent type 2 diabetes from causing further problems.
