Christophe Arbet-Engels, MD, Q5: How Much Can Empagliflozin Lower A1c?

Dr. Christophe Arbet-Engels discusses the clinical results of the empagliflozin studies focusing on the A1c drops which varied by study and were anywhere from .7 to 1% depending on the patient. He also differentiates between A1c drops due to weight loss and those due to the excretion of excess glucose which can be difficult to tease apart.
