What is Glyxambi?
Glyxambi is a prescription antidiabetic medication containing linagliptin, which is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 enzyme inhibitor, and empagliflozin, which is a sodium-glucose co-transporter inhibitor. They are manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim in Germany.
What is it used for?
Glyxambi is meant to be used by patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, in combination with a proper diet and regular exercise, to control blood sugar levels. Glyxambi can be taken with insulin or other commonly prescribed oral antidiabetic medications such as sulfonylureas; however, the doses should be lowered, as there may be a higher chance of developing hypoglycemia when used together with Glyxambi.
Why use this drug?
Glyxambi has the added benefit of reducing the cardiovascular death risk for patients with type 2 diabetes. It also has the action of two active ingredients in a single convenient pill that is taken once a day to lower both blood sugar levels and HbA1C readings. In a six-month study involving adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, 58% of those who took Glyxambi were found to achieve the target HbA1C of less than 7%, as set by the American Diabetes Association. Glyxambi has also been found to lower fasting blood sugar levels by a significant amount and induce weight loss by as much as 3.1 to 3.4%.Click to read more Click to read less
