Advise Taking "Flozins" in the Morning

Jardiance (jar-DEE-ans, empagliflozin) will be the third SGLT2 inhibitor...after Invokana (canagliflozin) and Farxiga (dapagliflozin).

These "flozins" increase glucose excretion by inhibiting sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) in the kidney.

They all lower A1C by about 0.7% to 1%...reduce weight by 4 to 7 pounds...lower systolic BP by 3 to 5 mmHg...and rarely cause hypoglycemia.
