Pioglitazone is used to treat Type II diabetes mellitus.
Pioglitazone: Antidiabetic agents (Thiazolidinediones)
Pioglitazone effectively controls blood sugar levels by activating certain receptors (PPAR-gamma and PPAR-alpha) in the body which are involved in metabolizing glucose. This makes our body utilize insulin for digesting the circulating blood glucose which in turn decreases blood sugar levels. Additionally, Pioglitazone can also reduce the glucose produced by the liver.
