Product Information

  • Description

    It contains; sitagliptin and metformin. Sitagliptin, an orally-active inhibitor of the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) enzyme, used as an oral hypoglycemic agent in Type II diabetes mellitus. Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) is an enzyme that acts to inactivate glucagon like peptide-1(GLP-1). When sitagliptin inhibits DPP-4 then levels of GLP-1 will increase that results in increased insulin release from body after taking meals and in this way glucose tolerance by body will increase. For adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, sitagliptin is indicated to improve glycemic control as an adjunct to diet and exercise. Used in patients that shows inadequate glycemic control by diet and exercise alone and for whom metformin is inappropriate due to contraindications or intolerance. Metformin (N, N-dimethylbiguanide) belongs to the biguanide class of antidiabetic drugs (containing two linked guanidine rings). This drug has a major clinical advantage that it does not induce hypoglycemia or weight gain with remarkable cardiovascular safety. Metformin is also used for the treatment of polycystic ovary disease, diabetic nephropathy, and gestational diabetes. Metformin acts via both AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK)-dependent and AMPK-independent mechanisms; by inhibiting mitochondrial respiration and inhibiting mitochondrial glycerophosphate dehydrogenase, and a mechanism involving the lysosome. Metformin acts directly or indirectly on the liver in order to reduce glucose production, and acts on the gut to increase glucose utilization. At the molecular level, metformin acts to inhibit the mitochondrial respiratory chain in the liver, which results in activation of AMPK, enhances insulin sensitivity (via effects on fat metabolism) and lowers cAMP, and reduces the expression of gluconeogenic enzymes. Metformin shows AMPK-independent effects on the liver that results in inhibition of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase by AMP.
