Empagliflozin is used for the management and prevention of type II diabetes mellitus. Empagliflozin, a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, lowers the kidneys threshold for glucose and increases urinary glucose excretion by interfering with the reabsorption of kidney-filtered glucose across the tubular lumen of the proximal renal tubules. Empagliflozin decreases fasting and post-prandial blood glucose levels, and imparts a low risk of hypoglycemia as its mechanism of action is independent of beta cell function and insulin pathway.
