Description: 869682 is an inhibitor of the sodium-glucose co-transporter SGLT2, which is found in the intestines and in the kidney. It is responsible for the re-uptake of glucose into the bloodstream. Inhibition should lead to excess glucose being excreted in the urine. This should lower high glucose levels and lead to less excess glucose being converted into fat.
