Apparently Forxiga is a protein blocker ( http://www.rxwiki.com/forxiga ). Are there any similar drugs available in the US?

Pharmacists describe Forxiga this way "a new class of drugs that work in the kidney to block a protein called SGLT2" ( http://www.rxwiki.com/forxiga ). This makes it sound like there are other meds like it in development. Will we be seeing this in the US any time soon?

It's early times, but I have been taking Foxiga for three weeks now and my suger is between 5.9 and 6.9 compared to 10's - 13's.
I must add that I also started to take apple cider before my meals and bedtime. And, I started to drink lemongrass tea.
