Pioglitazone And Metformin Tablets
Pioglitazone and metformin Tablets are used along with a healthy diet and exercise to treat high blood sugar levels caused by type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar levels can help avoid kidney disease, blindness, nerve disorders, limb loss, and sexual function issues. Diabetes management may also reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Pioglitazone belongs to a class of drugs known as thiazolidinediones or “glitazones”. It acts by improving insulin use in the body. Metformin inhibits sugar absorption from the stomach, decreases the release of stored sugar from the liver, and improves your body’s utilization of sugar. Patients with insulin-dependent or type 1 diabetes are not helped by this medication. Common side effects of Pioglitazone and metformin Tablets include nausea, diarrhea, swelling, vomiting, headache, dizziness, and low blood glucose level.
