The use of the drug has not led to the correction of lipid imbalances.

Conclusion.The results of the daily blood pressure monitoring indicate that dapagliflozin has antihypertensive activity, that confirms the reasonability of its use in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus in combination with essential hypertension and obesity.
