Effects of Sodium-glucose Co-transporter-2( SGLT-2 ) Inhibition on Sympathetic Nervous System Activity in Humans


Brief description of study

This study is designed to investigate whether the sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor Empagliflozin reduces sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity in humans.

Detailed Study Description

This is a randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled, cross-over study. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either Empagliflozin 10mg/daily or Placebo and will later receive the alternate treatment.

Comprehensive testing will occur after each 4 week treatment phase and will include assessment of muscle sympathetic nerve activity, cardiac and renal noradrenaline spillover to assess organ specific SNS activity.
