It's spring, a time for renewal, and a time for a new class of diabetes drug to take on the market.  This one is made by J&J, and it's called Invokana.
The oral drug works by getting rid of excess sugar in the blood stream by filtering it through the kidneys and out the urine stream. 
My curiosity has to do with the urine lab test strips doctors utilize to detect sugar in urine, prompting them to look further for diabetes!  Will this test be waived for patients taking Invokana?  Is this a silly question?  I'm always thinking of the little things, for little things sometimes count.
