New Lilly Diabetes Drug Gains FDA Approval

Federal regulators have approved a new treatment from Indiana’s Eli Lilly and Co. and its German counterpart, for type-2 diabetes.

The Food and Drug Administration has given the green light to Jardiance tablets.

The once daily drug is designed to reduce a patient's blood sugar levels by blocking glucose reabsorption in the kidneys and removing excess glucose through urine.

The good news is that unlike other diabetes treatments, it does not depend on a patient's insulin levels to be effective.
