INTRODUCTION

LIPAGLYN 4MG contains Saroglitazar which belongs to the class of medicines called peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR)-alpha and -gamma agonist. It is used for the treatment of diabetic dyslipidemia and hypertriglyceridemia (increased triglyceride levels in blood) in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus not adequately controlled by statin therapy. Diabetic dyslipidemia is a lipoprotein abnormality, characterized by elevated fasting and postprandial triglycerides, decreased high-density lipoprotein (HDL)-cholesterol levels and increase in small dense low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles.

LIPAGLYN 4MG acts by increasing the hepatic oxidation of fatty acids which results in significant reduction in synthesis of triglycerides. It also increases the production of good cholesterol and stimulates gene transcription of insulin which controls glucose production, transport and utilization.

The most common side effects of taking this medicine are gastritis, asthenia and pyrexia. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have type 2 diabetes with cardiac disease like episodic congestive heart failure. Such patients must be monitored for signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure. This medicine should be used with caution in patients with kidney or liver problems, pregnant or breastfeeding.

USES OF LIPAGLYN 4MG

  • Treats diabetic dyslipidemia and hypertriglyceridemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus not controlled by statins

HOW LIPAGLYN 4MG WORKS

LIPAGLYN 4MG is a potent PPAR-alpha agonist with moderate PPAR-gamma agonistic activity. This medicine activates PPAR-alpha which increases the hepatic oxidation of fatty acids significantly thus reducing the synthesis of triglycerides. It also increases the transfer of fatty acids from peripheral tissues to the liver and decreases both fatty acid synthesis and delivery of triglycerides to the peripheral tissues.
