Remogliflozin etabonate (INN/USAN)[1] is a proposed drug for the treatment of type 2 diabetes being investigated by GlaxoSmithKline.[2] Remogliflozin is now being developed by BHV Pharma.[citation needed]

Method of action[edit]

Remogliflozin inhibits the sodium-glucose transport proteins, which are responsible for glucose reabsorption in the kidney. Blocking this transporter causes blood glucose to be eliminated through the urine.[3]
