Product Information

  • Description

    Pioglitazone is a Thiazolidinedione antidiabetic medicine that decreases blood glucose by improving target cell response to insulin, without increasing pancreatic insulin secretion. Its action depends on the presence of insulin for activity. Pioglitazone is a strong and selective agonist for peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPAR-gamma). Activation of these effects results in the production of a number of gene products that are involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. The interaction between Pioglitazone and these receptors result in the reduction in glucose levels, free fatty acids and decrease in tumor necrosis factor alpha, which is a chemical mediator of inflammation. This medicine has an advantage over others that it does not usually cause hypoglycemia when given alone (not with other hypoglycemic agents).
