Farxiga Approved for Type 2 Diabetes - MedNews

In continuation of my update on Farxiga

Farxiga (dapagliflozin) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat adults with type 2 diabetes, the agency said Wednesday in a news release.
The drug, to be used for blood sugar control along with proper diet and exercise, is designed to prevent re-absorption of glucose by the kidneys. Type 2 diabetes affects some 24 million people, accounting for 90 percent of diabetes cases in the United States, the FDA said.
