Heart failure

Jardiance is suitable for prediabetics with heart failure | Characteristics

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 79 year old female who was diagnosed with heart failure six years ago. I exercise almost every day and have had low blood pressure all my life (my systolic pressure ranges between 70 and 100). I have a body mass index of 22. I recently started a pre-diabetic diet because my blood A1C value had shot up to 6.0.

My doctor wants to prescribe me the drug Jardiance. Some common nasty side effects of this drug have been explained to me and I am hesitant to take the drug. I am currently taking Cozaar and Zebeta, plus an occasional diuretic. — BE
