Federal regulators have approved a new treatment from U.S. drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co. and its German counterpart, Boehringer Ingelheim, for the most common form of diabetes .
The Food and Drug Administration said Friday it will permit Jardiance tablets to be used by adult patients with type 2 diabetes who also are trying to control their condition with diet and exercise.
The drug is designed to be taken once a day to reduce a patient's blood sugar levels by blocking glucose reabsorption in the kidneys and removing excess glucose through urine. Unlike other diabetes treatments, it does not depend on a patient's insulin levels to be effective.
