What is Onglyza?
Onglyza (saxagliptin) is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. It works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating.

Onglyza is for people with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes. Saxagliptin is sometimes used in combination with other diabetes medications, but is not for treating type 1 diabetes.

Onglyza may also be used for other purposes not listed here.
