What is Saxagliptin (Onglyza), and what does it do?
Saxagliptin (Onglyza) is used to treat type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which the body does not produce enough insulin, or the insulin produced does not result in the body being able to function properly. This can result in high blood sugar levels.
