Safely Buy Steglujan ( Ertugliflozin/Sitagliptin ) from Canada Prescriptions Plus.


Steglujan is a diabetes medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults.

This antidiabetic medication combines ertugliflozin, a sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, with sitagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. These drugs help your body excrete glucose through your urine and reduce renal glucose production. Thanks to these actions, Steglujan can lower and manage your blood sugar levels to treat type 2 diabetes.
