Pioglit 7.5 MG Description

Pioglit 7.5 tablet is an anti-diabetic medicine. It is used to manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a condition in which your pancreas does not make enough insulin to control

blood sugar levels and your body is also unable to efficiently use its own insulin. This causes high blood sugar levels in your body, which can cause medical problems like heart disease, kidney disease, blindness and poor blood flow in your hands and legs. Pioglit 7.5 tablet contains pioglitazone as the active ingredient. It works by controlling your body's sugar levels and making better insulin use. You should take this medicine in the exact dose and duration prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Do not miss any dose or abruptly stop taking Pioglit 7.5 tablet. Before starting this medicine, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, notify the doctor of your detailed medical history, including all the medicines you are currently taking. During treatment, patients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to get the best possible effect of this medicine.
