Jardiace

Ive just seen that jardiace has become available for type2's

 

It is claimed to reduce the risk of CVD .

 

 

The rep discussing this was from Austin . He said 7,000 people worldwide have trialled it.

 

 

In Australia, it is available on the PBS & only to those with type2  with an established  history of CVD

I was prescribed Jardiance a year ago when my insurance stopped covering Invokana.  I found it didn't seem to work as well so my doctor got me a discount and got me back on the Invokana.  I still have a few bottles of Jardiance in my cabinet.

its interesting that its been available for so long. the news item made it out to be a new miracle drug.

 

perhaps its because its only just been made available on the PBS pharmaceutical benefits scheme here .

 

Being on the PBS means that it will only cost about $7 here

I've been a type 1 diabetic for about ten years now. Have always taken Novolog and Lantus insulins daily. My last A1c three months ago was a 9.1. My doctor put me on Jardiance to help with the high blood sugar. So far, the only side effects I have noticed are increased thirst and increased urination, which is expected. Blood sugar levels have been better but, have only been taking it for five days. Any other type 1 diabetics taking Jardiance along with insulins?
