Type II Diabetes

Type II (or adult) diabetes usually comes about when a person is genetically predisposed to the disease. Other common causes of Type II diabetes in adults include the following:

  • Obesity
  • Excess consumption of sugar
  • Lack of physical activity and exercise

Untreated Type II diabetes can lead to blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure, stroke, and heart disease.

When combined with diet and exercise, Invokana can help to lower a diabetic’s blood sugar and improve glycemic control by forcing the kidneys to remove more glucose (sugar) from the body via urine. In fact, the most common side effect associated with Invokana is frequent urination.
