Default Question about Jardiance

Does Jardiance affect the immune system? I've been taking Jardiance since Dec 2018. Maybe I'll ask my pharmacist this too...

Your pharmacist should know. I had to look it up. Jardiance (and the class of drugs it belongs to, SGLT2 inhibitors) does not seem to have an effect on immune systems itself. If it brings your blood glucose levels closer to normal, though, then it gives your body one less native problem to address while it fights an infection.
