Safely Buy Jardiance ( Empagliflozin ) from Canada Prescriptions Plus.
( Top Brand Option )
Jardiance is an antidiabetic medication used to help those with type 2 diabetes treat associated kidney and heart complications. This medication is also used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization from heart failure for those with and without diabetes.
Empagliflozin is a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor that increases the excretion of glucose in the urine. By doing this, Jardiance reduces the reabsorption of glucose into the kidneys. This medication also reduces the reabsorption of sodium while increasing its delivery into the distal tubule which helps lower blood pressure.
