Glyxambi (empagliflozin and linagliptin) is a combination drug often prescribed to treat Type II diabetes. It works by inducing the kidneys to eliminate blood sugar while regulating insulin blood levels after food consumption. Diabetes is a complex illness related to the body’s inability to control blood sugar levels, often due to the pancreas’ inability to produce insulin.
