Ertugliflozin is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by blocking the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys, leading to an increase in glucose excretion and a decrease in blood sugar levels. Ertugliflozin can be used in combination with other diabetes medications to achieve better control over blood sugar levels. However, it is important to be aware of potential side effects, such as urinary tract infections, yeast infections, increased risk of diabetic ketoacidosis, dehydration, and low blood pressure. As with any medication, it is essential to consult with a healthcare professional for proper evaluation and treatment recommendations.
