Actos or Generic Pioglitazone Uses, dosage & side effects

Actos is a drug indicated in the treatment of people with type 2 diabetes and exerts its effectual action when the medicine is combined with a proper diet as well as an exercise in order to keep blood sugar low. The medication helps to control the levels of blood sugar in the body by restoring your body’s reaction to insulin.

This blood sugar control helps to prevent complications such as nerve issues, renal damage, blindness, loss of limbs, as well as sexual dysfunction. It might also lower your risk of heart attack and stroke.

How does Actos work?

Actos falls under the class of drugs called thiazolidinediones. It acts by reducing the amount of sugar the liver produces as well as the intestines absorb. It also aids to manufacture your body more sensitive to the insulin that you produce in a natural way.
