SGLT2 Inhibitors in Type 2 Diabetes Lowers Gout Risk

Dec 15, 2021

A recent study of drugs used in type 2 diabetes (T2DM) shows that SGLT2 inhibitors have a lower risk for gout compared with those receiving DPP4 inhibitors.



The sodium–glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (e.g., Invokana, Jardiance, Farxiga) are reported to lower the risk of gout in

Important #gout study (I'm biased): allopurinol is non-inferior to febuxostat with regards to gout flare when used in a T2T approach, with no differences in AEs, including CV risk. 99% achieved serum urate target over course of trial. Key slides following. #ACR21 https://t.co/tWeGvZ4rKY

We may be getting a new urate lowering therapy. Tigulixostat is a non-purine selective xanthine oxidase inhibitor. Nothing worrying on safety. But I think febuxostat is probably more effective than this? Abstr#L05 #ACR21 @RheumNow https://t.co/Lg0slMlah2

DECT (dual energy CT) very helpful to distinguish gout from other crystals and give volumetric measurements using color-coded images... So do we need to do arthrocentesis to diagnose gout anymore? #ACR21 https://t.co/kn2IpXP870
