The class of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors is an integral part of the management of type 2 diabetes. This review will assess the evidence regarding the clinical effectiveness and harms of SGLT2 inhibitors compared to other glucose lowering drugs in adults with type 2 diabetes. The focus of the report will be on summarizing and appraising recent (from 2020 to present) systematic reviews with meta-analyses.
