FARXIGA can help in more ways than one

If you have type 2 diabetes, you probably know how important it is to lower your blood sugar. But do you know why? It’s because high blood sugar can take a serious toll on your body. Over time, it can damage blood vessels in essential organs—like your kidneys and your heart.

STEP ONE:

Lower your blood sugar with FARXIGA

FARXIGA is a once-daily pill proven to help lower A1C, along with diet and exercise.

Individual results may vary.

Remember, lowering blood sugar is just the first step.

FARXIGA + METFORMIN XR helps lower A1C by this number of points when used as the first drug therapy for type 2 diabetes.*

*Average reduction with 5mg + metformin XR when starting at 9.2% A1C. Metformin XR alone lowered A1C by 1.4% when starting at 9.1% A1C.

STEP TWO: Learn about other conditions you may also have

If you have type 2 diabetes, you may also have chronic kidney disease and not know it

What’s the connection between type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD)?

High blood sugar from diabetes can damage the blood vessels in your kidneys, which may cause CKD. CKD usually gets worse over time.

For people with CKD:

  • The damaged kidneys can’t filter the blood as well as they should
  • Waste and excess fluid stays in the body, which can lead to other health issues like a stroke or heart disease
  • Eventually, the kidneys can stop working, which is called “kidney failure.” When this happens, people need dialysis or a kidney transplant to survive

FARXIGA can help people with CKD by reducing the risk of further worsening of kidney disease. Learn more

Could you have CKD? Only a test can tell you.

Many people with CKD don’t have symptoms, so they don’t know they have it. Testing is the only way to diagnose it. Here are some of the risk factors:

  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Obesity
  • Family History of CKD

Talk to your doctor about getting tested for CKD.

Type 2 diabetes and heart disease or CV risk factors

Even if you're managing your blood sugar, you're still at risk for heart failure hospitalization

What’s heart failure and where does diabetes come in?

A healthy heart is a muscular pump that squeezes and relaxes to deliver blood to the body. Over time, high blood sugar from type 2 diabetes can damage the nerves and blood vessels that control the heart. Heart failure doesn’t mean the heart has stopped. It means:

  • The heart muscle is weak, so it can’t pump enough blood to keep up with the body’s needs
  • Unlike a heart attack, heart failure happens slowly
  • It’s a chronic condition that gets worse over time and can lead to hospitalization
