Clinicians have many safe and effective options for the treatment of type 2 diabetes that can improve glycemic control and effect other cardio-metabolic parameters. Sodium-glucose transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2) are the most recent class of therapies, have a novel mechanism of action, and provide good glycemic efficacy and a favorable cardiovascular risk profile. Cost-effectiveness data can play an important role in assessing the benefits of this class of therapy in anti-diabetes treatment regimens. Areas covered: This review summarizes all the available evidence regarding the cost-effectiveness of SGLT-2 inhibitors. For the purposes of this article, the authors have performed a systematic review of pharmacoeconomic analyses through a non-restricted literature until June 2018. Expert opinion: The available analyses demonstrate that SGLT-2 inhibitors are a more cost-effective option compared to other oral anti-diabetes therapies and insulin in the treatment of individuals with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. Future studies should examine populations with renal and liver disease and expand data of some SGLT-2 inhibitors to patients at high cardiovascular risk and hard endpoint data.

Sodium-dependent glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibition has been demonstrated to efficiently control hyperglycemia via an insulin secretion-independent pathway. The unique mode of action eliminat...
Clinical trials with sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors (empagliflozin, dapagliflozin, and canagliflozin) have shown a decrease in the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). SGLT2...
Network meta-analyses (NMAs) are valuable ways to generate comparative effectiveness data for therapies available to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). This review assesses NMAs that evaluate sodi...
With their novel, insulin-independent mechanism, sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are a major turning point in the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. At present, there are severa...

Empagliflozin (Jardiance)® is a sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2)-Inhibitor, which is a new treatment option developed for patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. The SGLT2 is expre...
A sodium-glucose transporter that is expressed in the luminal membrane of the PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULES.
The founding member of the sodium glucose transport proteins. It is predominately expressed in the INTESTINAL MUCOSA of the SMALL INTESTINE.
A glucoside-derived SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 inhibitor that stimulates urinary excretion of glucose by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption. It is used to manage BLOOD GLUCOSE levels in patients with TYPE 2 DIABETES.
An autosomal inherited disorder due to defective reabsorption of GLUCOSE by the PROXIMAL RENAL TUBULES. The urinary loss of glucose can reach beyond 50 g/day. It is attributed to the mutations in the SODIUM-GLUCOSE TRANSPORTER 2 encoded by the SLC5A2 gene.
A ubiquitously expressed glucose transporter that is important for constitutive, basal GLUCOSE transport. It is predominately expressed in ENDOTHELIAL CELLS and ERYTHROCYTES at the BLOOD-BRAIN BARRIER and is responsible for GLUCOSE entry into the BRAIN.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
