About the effectiveness of Japanese tablets Suglat for type 1 and type 2 diabetes
Suglat tablets 50 mg from Japan are effective for type 1 and type 2 diabetes. They work as SGLT2 inhibitor. By inhibiting the reabsorption of glucose in kidneys, Suglat tablets reduce the glucose blood level. Ipragliflozin is generally well tolerated and has few side effects. Studies also show it has an ability to reduce the body mass and fat mass, but not the muscle mass, which is especially important for patients with diabetes (H. Inoue, K. Morino et al. Ipragliflozin, a sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor, reduces bodyweight and fat mass, but not muscle mass, in Japanese type 2 diabetes patients treated with insulin: A randomized clinical trial. Journal of Diabetes Investigation, 2019 Jul; 10(4): 1012–1021).
