What is Invokana?

Invokana is an antidiabetic medicine which contains canagliflozin. It is prescribed to adults with type 2 diabetes in order to help them control their sugar levels.

It may be given when lifestyle and dietary changes have been inefficient at lowering blood sugar levels, or when other diabetes medicine such as metformin is deemed unsuitable. Invokana may be used alongside other diabetes treatments such as insulin.

What is Diabetes?

Type 2 Diabetes is a common condition that is usually connected with being overweight or inactive. You may be at an increased risk of diabetes if other immediate members of your family are diabetic, such as your parents.

Diabetes is caused by the glucose (sugar) levels in the blood becoming too high. The pancreas is supposed to create plenty of insulin which allows the glucose in our blood to be absorbed by our cells for energy; people with type 2 Diabetes are either unable to create enough insulin or it isn’t working properly, meaning the glucose levels in the blood remains high.

Symptoms of diabetes include an increased need to urinate, excessive thirst and being constantly tired. It can also cause further complications that affect the eyes (retinopathy), heart (cardiovascular disease) and nerves (neuropathy), as well as cause kidney damage and hearing impairment.

Treating Diabetes

If diabetes is left untreated, a number of complications can arise. These complications include damage to vital organs, such as the heart and kidneys, to nerve damage called neuropathy. In some cases, blindness can develop through a complication known as diabetic retinopathy. Treating diabetes and keeping your blood sugar at the optimum level can prevent these complications.

Before you buy Invokana online, it's important to speak to your doctor about your condition. Your doctor will be able to provide appropriate advice for managing your condition, tailored specifically for you. It's important to always follow your doctor's advice.

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that may require a change to the diet, daily medication and regular check-ups.


How Does Invokana Work?

Invokana works because it contains Canagliflozin, which is an inhibitor of the sodium-glucose co-transporter (SGLT2).

The SGLT2 transporter prevents the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose into the blood. Instead, it allows the kidneys to expel the excess glucose from the blood into the urine, decreasing the sugar levels in the blood.


How Do I Take Invokana?

One tablet of Invokana is to be taken once a day ideally before your first meal in the morning. It can be taken with or without food, and should be swallowed whole with water.

It should not be used during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding.
