    If any of you guys take Jardiance as diabetic medication, can you please share your opinion on whether the 10mg and 25mg has a big difference in terms of effect and side effects?

    I have been taking 25mg a day for the last 3 months and I have no side effects and its actually doing a good job of controlling my blood sugar levels.... it took me a while to get used to going to the loo more often and I drink more water which was advised from my diabetes doctor

    I’m on this medication and will be going up to 25mg once it’s been prescribed by my dr. The only problem I’ve had with this is repeated thrush so my diabetic dr has told me to drink more as that dilutes it down. I find it quite difficult as I really don’t drink loads. So I’ve increased a little more squash!

    I hope the squash is suger free, as otherwise it will increase the amount of suger comming out the other end, and hence increase the thrush.

    I don’t know about that. I don’t follow a low carb diet.

    Are the carbs worth the thrush?
