I was taking a cocktail of pills (12 a day, 6 meds)to control my diabetes. I'm down to 3 meds.& my A1C is down,7 from 9 a year ago. I have lost weight and my eating habits have changed for the better. At the beginning, I was thirsty and had dry mouth. Also I had to use the bathroom more than usual. Now that my numbers are better, I feel better.

Been on 100 mg. treatment for 10 days now, I also continue to take metformin 1000mg 2 x a day. Levemir 30 units a day .... Now I'm down to 10 units a day. The invokana is helping so much that I am taking less levemir. Dr. Just upped my dose today to 300 mg. invokana in hopes that I can discontinue levemir all together. BS is doing much better, fasting BS was in the 200-300 range, now it's ... Show Full Comment
