What are the benefits of Jardiance?

Jardiance (empagliflozin) is a medicine that can help people with type 2 diabetes stay in control of their blood glucose levels. When starting Jardiance, you can expect: 
  • a moderate drop in your HbA1c level (0.5%-1%, depending on your baseline)
  • a moderate decrease in your fasting plasma glucose of 30 mg/dL
  • to lose about three to six pounds, or 2.5%-5% of your body weight 
  • a small but significant lowering of the top (systolic) number of your blood pressure reading (about 2-4 mmHg)
Researchers noticed these improvements in clinical trials. Your results on the drug may be even better. The bottom line is that if you want to have better diabetes control and lose weight without low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), Jardiance may be a good option for you.
