Pharmacological information of pioglitazone

Medication Information: Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, a condition called diabetes mellitus (diabetes mellitus) develops. People with diabetes need treatment to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people can control their blood sugar by making changes to their diet, but for others, medication is prescribed in addition to the change in diet.

Pioglitazone increases the sensitivity of your body cells to insulin (so for the same amount of insulin in the bloodstream, more glucose is absorbed into the cells). Pioglitazone can be used alone but is usually taken with metformin or other anti-diabetic drugs.

If you have serious side effects, talk to your doctor about changing your medication dose, exercise program, and diet.

Beta-blockers (such as metoprolol, propranolol, glaucoma eye drops such as thymolol) may prevent heart palpitations, which are commonly felt during hypoglycemia. Other symptoms of low blood sugar, such as dizziness, hunger, or sweating, are not affected by these medications.
