Living with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) requires consistency, discipline, and a clear plan to achieving the treatment goals that doctors advise patients to pursue. Good thing there are new drugs that can help diabetes patient reduce blood sugar while supporting weight loss and blood pressure reduction.

According to the International Journal.of Clinical Practice, taking Dapagliflozin strongly indicate a significant reduction of blood sugar throughout the spectrum of type 2 diabetes compared to other drugs.
“Dapagliflozin has been lauded for a reducing blood sugar levels of patients with additional health benefits. Patients routinely show weight loss and lower overall blood pressure, which is a great for patients struggling with the lifestyle adjustment necessary for managing type 2 diabetes.” – Dr. Rima Tan, President of Diabetes Philippines.
