SGLT2 inhibitors based on recent evidence have shown promising Cardio vascular benefits apart from Glycemic Control in T2DM management. ESC-EASD 2019 clearly suggest that All SGLT2i reduces CV risk (3P MACE), HHF, worsening of Nephropathy .Only Empagliflozin has been recommended for reducing the Risk of CV death in T2DM with ASCVD & the CV death remains independent of baseline HbA1c or control of HbA1c. Empagliflozin CV death is very unique because the consistency of Mortality benefit remains very significant in patients of T2DM with various CVD (like Single Vessel disease CAD, Multiple Vessel Disease CAD, Prior CABG, Prior MI, Prior Stroke, Prior HHF, PAD).
