Pioglar general information

What is Pioglar used for?

Pioglar tablets 30mg are an oral diabetes medication that are used to control blood sugar levels in people with type-2 diabetes mellitus (also called non insulin-dependent diabetes or maturity onset diabetes) who are unable to achieve adequate glycaemic control (normal blood sugar levels) with diet and exercise alone. Pioglar tablets 30mg can be used alone as monotherapy, in conjunction with diet and exercise, or in combination with other antihyperglycaemic medication (lowers blood sugar), like sulfonylureas or metformin, when a single drug does not result in adequate glycaemic control. In some cases, Pioglar
30 can be used in conjunction with insulin for treatment of type-1 diabetes (also called insulin-dependent diabetes), where insulin alone is not enough to control blood sugar levels.

How does Pioglar work?

Pioglar tablets 30mg contain pioglitazone, an oral antihyperglycaemic medication belonging to the thiazolidinedione group of drugs. Pioglitazone in Pioglar tablets 30mg controls blood glucose (sugar) primarily by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing insulin resistance in the liver, where glucose is produced, and peripheral tissues, mainly muscle and adipose (fat) tissue, where excess glucose is removed from the blood and stored. Pioglitazone in Pioglar tablets 30mg interacts with specific receptors on insulin-reactive cells, like muscle, fat and liver, which allows insulin to do its work, resulting in improved glycaemic control after a meal (posprandial) as well as between meal. This action prevents fluctuations in the daily blood glucose profile, and reduces the amount of glucose and insulin in the blood; which is reflected in the amount of glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) a measure of blood glucose over a prolonged period of time. Maintaining glycaemic control with Pioglar 30 reduces risk of serious health complications associated with diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy (damage to the retina in the eye with loss of vision), diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) and diabetic nephropathy (kidney damage).
