What is Steglatro?

Steglatro (generic name Ertugliflozin) is a diabetes medicine that is used with diet and exercise to help keep blood sugar levels under control.

What is Steglatro used for?

Steglatro is used by adults with type 2 diabetes to lower blood sugar along with exercise and diet.

What are the side effects of Steglatro?

Common Steglatro side effects include:

  • Genital yeast infection (penis infection in men or vaginal infection in women)
    • It can cause redness, odor, pain, itching, swelling, or discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Changes in how you pee
    • Steglatro can increase how much you pee, so you may have to pee more often, or at night.

Serious, but rare Steglatro side effects include:

  • Amputations (surgery to remove a toe, foot, or leg) - If you have any new pain, soreness, ulcers, or infections in your leg or foot, call your doctor right away. You’re at a higher risk of amputation if you have heart disease, nerve damage in your legs, blocked or narrow blood vessels in your legs, a history of diabetic foot ulcers, or a history of amputation.
  • Low blood pressure or dehydration - You can feel dizzy, lightheaded, or faint, especially if you try to stand up too fast. This is more likely to happen if you're older (over age 65), take blood pressure medicine, have kidney problems, and/or eat a low salt diet.
  • Increased ketones in blood and urine (ketoacidosis) - You may feel sick to your stomach, or throw up. Some people feel tired, have stomach pain, or have trouble breathing. This can happen even if your blood sugar is less than 250mg/dL, so be sure to check for ketones in your urine if you have any of these symptoms.
  • Kidney problems - A possible Steglatro side effect is that it may harm your kidneys. Be sure to have routine blood tests before and while using Steglatro to make sure your kidneys stay healthy. Call your doctor right away if you suddenly start to eat or drink less (for example, if you get sick), or if you start losing fluid (through diarrhea, vomiting, or blood loss) because this can make it more likely for Steglatro to hurt your kidneys.
  • Low blood sugar - This can leave you feeling sweaty, shaky, tired, weak, hungry, confused and irritable, feeling like your heart is racing, or give you a headache. Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting Steglatro to check your risk for developing low blood sugar (especially if you take Steglatro with other diabetes medicine). Understand how to bring your sugar back up safely, as directed by your doctor.
  • A severe genital infection around the anus - Steglatro may harm the tissue under the skin around the anus, and cause pain, redness and swelling in your genital area.
  • Increases in cholesterol in your blood - Sometimes Steglatro can make your LDL-C (also known as "bad cholesterol") levels go up, so your doctor will monitor your blood tests regularly.
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI) - If you have a UTI, you may experience any of the following symptoms:
    • Feeling burning or pain when you pee
    • Feeling like you cannot control your pee because you need to pee more urgently or frequently
    • Pain in your pelvis (lower part of your stomach)
    • Fever or backache
    • Nausea (feeling sick to your stomach)
    • Throwing up

    Call your doctor right away if you think you may have a UTI. A possible Steglatro side effect is a very serious UTI which requires going to the hospital, so it’s best to let your doctor know immediately if you start having any symptoms.

  • Allergic reaction (rash, hives, swelling of face and tongue, trouble breathing)

Call your doctor if you think you are experiencing any side effects from Steglatro.

  • What is the proper dosage of Steglatro?

    Steglatro doses vary depending on your blood sugar levels and how well your kidneys work. Ask your doctor for the proper Steglatro dose for you. Many healthy adults (people without kidney problems) start by taking one Steglatro tablet by mouth once every morning. Steglatro can be taken with or without food.

  • What is the difference between Steglatro and Jardiance?

    Steglatro and Jardiance are both medications used to lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. When deciding to use Steglatro vs Jardiance, your doctor will consider your other health conditions. Unlike Steglatro, Jardiance is used specifically in people with both type 2 diabetes and heart disease to help lower chances of heart attacks, strokes, and sudden death. Jardiance is also less likely to have the side effect of amputations, so if you have a history of narrow or blocked blood vessels in your legs, your doctor may choose to prescribe Jardiance. Another key factor when deciding between Steglatro vs Jardiance is cost. Prescription Steglatro price may be significantly higher or lower than Jardiance since costs can vary.
