Patients with type 2 diabetes experienced improved glycemic control and reductions in body weight after adding canagliflozin to insulin therapy.

OBJECTIVE: There are limited data about the effects of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors when used with insulin. We report the efficacy and safety of canagliflozin in patients with type 2 diabetes using insulin.
