Answer

Sodium-glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitors

SGLT2 inhibitors block the reabsorption of glucose in the kidney through an increased glucose excretion by lowering the renal threshold.

Canagliflozin (Invokana)

Canagliflozin reduces plasma glucose concentrations by increasing urinary excretion of glucose.
