Sodium-glucose Cotransporter-2 Inhibitors (SGLT2i) has been in focus for the pharmacotherapy of diabetes. SGLT2i contributes to decreasing blood pressure (BP) to some degree. BP changes were analyzed in 4 well-known mega-studies. They are Empagliflozin Cardiovascular Outcome Event Trial in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Patients-Removing Excess Glucose (EMPA-REG OUTCOME) study, Canagliflozin cardioVascular Assessment Study (CANVAS), Canagliflozin and Renal Events in Diabetes with Established Nephropathy Clinical Evaluation (CREDENCE) and Dapagliflozin Effect on CardiovascuLAR Events (DECLARE)-TIMI 58. The ultimate goal of antihypertensive and hypoglycemic agents is not the achievement of target values, but the suppression of cardiovascular events. SGLT-2i show excellent strategy for event suppression and adjunct method for hypertension.
