The frequency of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus worldwide is rising rapidly and is estimated to reach 4.4% of the world’s population or about 366 million people by 2030. In the view of National Diabetes Statistics report 2017, 30.3 million people have diabetes in the United States (9.4%) of total population, out of which, 23.1 million are diagnosed and 7.2 million (23.8%) people with Diabetes are undiagnosed. One of the recently introduced therapeutic classes is Sodium Glucose co- Transporter 2 (SGLT2) Inhibitors. Since 2010 USFDA has approved 6 single dose and 7 fixed dose combinations for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. SGLT2 Inhibitors such as Canagliflozin, Dapagliflozin and Empagliflozin are in combinations with most of the dosage forms. This article reviews published analytical methods reported so far in the literature to find SGLT2 inhibitors. They include various techniques like spectrophotometry, high-performance liquid chromatography, liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization- tandem mass spectrometry and high-performance thin layer chromatography for their routine, impurity profiling and stability indicating determination in different pharmaceutical matrices.
