Probably: B"sd In general glyburide and other sulfonamides are well documented to increase risk of MI about 20% - there are safer options. Invokana is a SGLTP2i- sodium glucose transport protein inhibitor, that results in sugar in the urine. It has actually been shown to protect kidney function over the long term. It also has a diuretic effect so should skip if you are dehdrated from scan or other reason
