What is Steglatro?
Steglatro (ertugliflozin) is prescribed alongside diet and exercise to lower blood glucose levels in adults with type 2 diabetes, independent of insulin. It’s classified as a type of drug called gliflozins, which change the physiology of the roughly 1.5 million nephrons in each human kidney.
Steglatro is a tablet that is taken every morning, with or without food.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Type 2 diabetes can worsen over time and cause the same complications that are commonly associated with type 1 diabetes, such as:
- Vision loss
- Kidney damage
- Nerve damage
- Cardiovascular disease
- Skin conditions
The better a diabetic is to manage blood glucose levels, the less likely he or she is to suffer such complications. But that requires an uninterrupted supply of potentially costly medications like Steglatro.
Simplefill is committed to ensuring that people who rely on costly medications to manage serious chronic diseases can afford those medications without having to sacrifice other necessities. Think of Simplefill as the bridge between people who need prescription assistance and the programs that can provide it.
How does Steglatro Work?
Steglatro is a sodium/glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor. SGLT2 is the main transporter that carries glucose from the nephrons back into the bloodstream through a process of reabsorption. Steglatro interrupts that process by working on the nephrons in the kidneys to stop them from reabsorbing sugar and increasing the elimination of sugar in the urine.
