Jardiance is an oral medication used to lower and manage blood sugar levels in diabetes patients. The main ingredient in Jardiance is empagliflozin, which works by assisting the kidneys’ process of removing glucose from your bloodstream. Together with a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, Jardiance can improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes. In diabetes patients who also have heart disease, Jardiance may be prescribed to lower the risk of death from a heart attack, heart failure, or stroke. Empagliflozin may also be used to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death in adults with heart failure. This medication is not for treating type 1 diabetes.

What is Jardiance used for?
Jardiance (empagliflozin) is used for controlling blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes patients and reducing the risk of cardiovascular death in those with heart failure. This drug is used in combination with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control and symptoms of type 2 diabetes.
How long does it take for Jardiance to work?
Jardiance works quickly and benefits your blood sugar levels within the first week of treatment. However, Jardiance is a long-term drug that can take up to 24 weeks for you to get the full benefits of this drug. Jardiance may benefit you quicker than others. Your doctor will monitor your progress to ensure this drug is helping with blood sugar control.
Does Jardiance make you lose weight?
Although Jardiance can help patients with type 2 diabetes lose weight, this is not the approved use. In clinical studies, patients taking Jardiance alone experienced 2 to 3 percent weight loss, but Jardiance should not be used for weight loss in patients without type 2 diabetes. If you are not affected by the conditions indicated for treatment with Jardiance and are looking to lose weight, talk to your doctor for an approved option.
