Think of Steglatro as Similar to Invokana, Forxiga, and Jardiance

Steglatro (steh-GLAH-troh, ertugliflozin) will be the fourth SGLT2 inhibitor for type 2 diabetes.

Steglatro will join the other "flozins"...Invokana (canagliflozin), Forxiga (dapagliflozin), and Jardiance (empagliflozin).

You can use the name to remember that FLOzins lower blood sugar by helping excess glucose FLOW out in the urine. They're usually saved for when metformin isn't enough.
