Dapagliflozin 10 mg - DAPAnum-10 is used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus either alone or in conjunction with other medications. It aids in lowering the elevated blood sugar levels associated with diabetes. In addition to helping avoid heart disease, this lessens the possibility of diabetes-related catastrophic consequences. Get up carefully while rising from a sitting or laying posture to avoid the risk of dizziness and lightheadedness with dapagliflozin 10 mg. A chronic or lifelong disorder, type 2 diabetes occurs when the body's cells do not respond to insulin and, in later stages, do not create enough insulin.

You should disclose to your doctor any past health conditions, medical history, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the use of any medications before beginning therapy with this drug. Along with the medication, a good diet and exercise are required. Uncontrolled diabetes increases the risk of several health issues, including heart disease, stroke, and eye, kidney, and nerve disorders.

How its works - 

DAPAnum-10 works by inhibiting the kidney's SGLT2 protein, which results in the excretion of blood sugar (glucose), salt (sodium), and water in the form of urine. These kidney-related effects may also help your heart pump blood more efficiently, which lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease.

Medicial benefits of Dapagliflozin 10 mg as per research - 

Type 2 diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes may be treated with DAPAnum-10, an anti-diabetic medication (NIDDM). The majority of patients for whom this medication is administered have high blood sugar levels that are resistant to diet and exercise alone. The active ingredient in DAPAnum-10 is "Dapagliflozin 10 mg," a sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor that prevents the kidney's SGLT-2 enzymes from working. Because of this, it reduces the amount of glucose your body excretes through urination after it has been passed by your kidney.
