To assess the efficacy and safety of the SGLT-2 inhibitors as adjunct therapy to insulin in T1DM, clinical trials indexed in PubMed, Cochrane Library, EMbase from inception through April 5, 2016. A meta-analysis was conducted on trials of SGLT-2 inhibitors in patients with T1DM on insulin therapy using RevMan 5.3 software. Of the 371 articles identified, ten met eligibility criteria. Seven clinical trials including four randomized controlled trials and 581 patients were included. Compared with the control group, SGLT-2 inhibitors group had significantly reduced fasting plasma glucose by 0...

Peters et al documented the appearance of diabetic ketoacidosis without significant elevation of serum glucose in patients treated with Canagliflozin. They solicited patient reports from their practice and from other colleagues' practices and identified nine patients, mainly with Type I Diabetes. Erondu et al evaluated the Canagliflozin development data base to describe the rate and appearance of ketoacidosis in the study patients. They found that in the research patients with Type 2 Diabetes, the rate of ketoacidosis in Canagliflozin patients was uncommon and similar to the reported rate in Type 2 patients not receiving Canagliflozin...

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2i) are a class of antidiabetic medications that improve glycemic control via inhibiting the reabsorption of filtered glucose and are approved for use in type 2 diabetes (T2DM). These drugs have recently been associated with euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). An increasing number of cases of SGLT-2i-associated DKA have occurred in patients with T2DM. Herein, we describe five episodes of hyperglycemic DKA in four type 2 diabetes patients receiving SGLT-2i therapy...

We report a case of atypical ketoacidosis in a patient treated with a sodium-glucose cotransporter- (SGLT) 2 inhibitor. The 25-year-old woman, who one year earlier had been prescribed dapagliflozin for presumed Type 2 diabetes, came to the emergency department in a state of severe ketoacidosis, pH 6.85, and a plasma glucose level of 14.3 mmol/l. She received standard treatment and recovered. We discuss the increasing evidence for atypical ketoacidosis being a serious side effect of the SGLT2 inhibitors.

Cardiovascular (CV) and kidney disease are common and significant complications in people with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). CV disease is the leading cause of death, morbidly and hospitalisations for people with T2DM. Furthermore, diabetic kidney disease is a major risk factor for CV disease and is the main reason why patients need renal replacement therapy. In this perspective, we highlight the results of the recent landmark EMPA-REG OUTCOME trial which has shown that empagliflozin, a member of the sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor class of glucose lowering medications, reduces death from CV causes, hospitalisation for heart failure and progression to end stage kidney disease in patients with T2DM and established CV disease...

The sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT-2i)-class is efficacious as monotherapy and as add-on therapy with an expected lowering of the glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) concentration of approximately 7 mmol/mol. Side effects relate to the mode of action, genital infections are the main problem. Extremely rare cases of ketoacidosis are reported, mostly in patients with Type 1 diabetes. One SGLT-2i, empagliflozin, has been shown to reduce cardiovascular mortality and progression of kidney disease in patients with Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease...

INTRODUCTION: Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors are relatively new antihyperglycemic agents that lower renal glucose reabsorption. They are used as adjunctive therapy to standard diabetes treatment. CASE REPORT: We present the case of a 62-year-old woman with a past medical history of type 2 diabetes mellitus and sudden-onset diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Use of canagliflozin, a SGLT-2 inhibitor, was determined to be the cause of the DKA. The patient ultimately recovered after 5 days in the intensive care unit...

A recent increase in euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (euDKA)-a metabolic state with plasma bicarbonate exceeding 10 mEq/L and blood glucose levels lower than 300 mg/dL-has caught regulators and providers by surprise. It's been more than 40 years since the British Medical Journal expanded the "panorama of diabetic metabolic upsets" with an article on euDKA. Although still rare, the occurrence of euDKA is becoming slightly more common. Unlike the more widely known diabetic ketoacidosis, this condition is devoid of blood glucose elevation...

Sodium glucose co-transporter (SGLT-2) inhibitor is a relatively new medication used to treat diabetes. At present, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has only approved three medications (canagliflozin, dapagliflozin and empagliflozin) in this drug class for the management of Type 2 diabetes. In May 2015, the FDA issued a warning of ketoacidosis with use of this drug class. Risk factors for the development of ketoacidosis among patients who take SGLT-2 inhibitors include decrease carbohydrate intake/starvation, acute illness and decrease in insulin dose...

We are reporting a timely case of atypical euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis in a type 1 diabetic patient treated with sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor canagliflozin. The clinical history, physical examination findings and laboratory values are described. Other causes of acidosis such as salicylate toxicity or alcohol intoxication were excluded. Ketoacidosis resolved after increasing dextrose and insulin doses supporting the hypothesis that SGLT-2 inhibitors may lead to hypoinsulinemia. Euglycemic ketoacidosis did not recur in our patient after discontinuing canagliflozin...

Canagliflozin (Invokana) is a selective sodium glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor that was first introduced in 2013 for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Though not FDA approved yet, its use in type 1 DM has been justified by the fact that its mechanism of action is independent of insulin secretion or action. However, some serious side effects, including severe anion gap metabolic acidosis and euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), have been reported. Prompt identification of the causal association and initiation of appropriate therapy should be instituted for this life threatening condition...

Sodium glucose Cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are a new class of drug approved for the treatment of type-2 diabetes; however they are also increasingly used off label in type-1 diabetic patients. SGLT2 Inhibitors work by increasing glucose excretion in urine. Euglycemic diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is potentially life threatening side effect as patients have normal glucose and minimal symptoms thus delaying diagnosis and treatment. Our case report highlights the risk of using SGLT2 inhibitors in type-1 diabetes and also supports the need for long term studies to define clear efficacy and complications of SGLT 2 inhibitors in both type-1 and type 2 diabetes mellitis...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This article evaluates the role of Sodium glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor and Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist's (GLP-1 RA's)s in the treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D). RECENT FINDINGS: Both agents help to produce a small reduction in HbA1C levels with accompanying weight loss. Submaximal doses of SGLT-2 inhibitors may reduce the risk for hypoglycemia as well as limit glycemic variability. However, SGLT-2 inhibitors appear to increase rates of ketone body production and diabetic ketoacidosis, and therefore must only be used in the setting of appropriate risk mitigation...

Sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT-2i) are newly approved class of oral anti-diabetic drugs, in the treatment of type 2 diabetes, which reduces blood glucose through glucouresis via the kidney, independent, and irrespective of available pancreatic beta-cells. Studies conducted across their clinical development program found, a modest reduction in glycated hemoglobin ranging from -0.5 to -0.8%, without any significant hypoglycemia. Moreover, head-to-head studies versus active comparators yielded comparable efficacy...

OBJECTIVE: Limited information is available on chronic use of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors in type 1 diabetes (T1D). We conducted a retrospective review of T1D patients on Dexcom G4Platinum continuous glucose monitors (DCGMs) >1 year (mean, 4.6 years) who were prescribed canagliflozin (CANA) 100 mg daily and had a baseline DCGM 30-day download prior to and a second download after at least 1 month (mean, 3.7 months) taking CANA 100 mg daily. The glycemic, weight, and systolic blood pressure (SBP) effects are reported...

Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) were recently introduced for the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D). SGLT2i lower plasma glucose by inhibiting the renal reuptake of glucose leading to glucosuria. Generally, these drugs are considered safe to use. However, recently, SGLT2i have been suggested to predispose to ketoacidosis. Here, we present a case of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) developed in an obese, poorly controlled male patient with T2D treated with the SGLT2i dapagliflozin. He was admitted with DKA 5 days after the initiation of treatment with the SGLT2i dapagliflozin...

CONTEXT: Sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are antidiabetic drugs that increase urinary excretion of glucose, thereby improving glycemic control and promoting weight loss. Since approval of the first-in-class drug in 2013, data have emerged suggesting that these drugs increase the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis. In May 2015, the Food and Drug Administration issued a warning that SGLT2 inhibitors may lead to ketoacidosis. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION: Using PubMed and Google, we conducted Boolean searches including terms related to ketone bodies or ketoacidosis with terms for SGLT2 inhibitors or phlorizin...
