INTRODUCTION

TENUMET TABLET is a combination of Metformin and Teneligliptin which belongs to the group of medicines called Antidiabetic agents. It is used to treat Type II diabetes mellitus among patients when diet, exercise and treatment with other conventional medicines does not result in adequate control on blood glucose levels.

Type II diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease characterized by abnormally high levels of glucose in the blood. It is caused due to inadequate production of a hormone called insulin (produced by pancreas to metabolize glucose) in the body or due to inadequate sensitivity of body cells to the actions of insulin.

During therapy with TENUMET TABLET, your doctor might regularly monitor your blood sugar levels and kidney functions to avoid the risk of unwanted side effects. He/she might also ask you to make certain lifestyle changes such as following a healthy diet, regular physical exercise and quitting alcohol consumption to achieve better results.

Additionally, it can stop glucose production by the liver and reduces its absoprtion in the body.

Teneligliptin controls blood sugar levels by blocking the actions of an enzyme called dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP)-4 that reduces insulin secretion in the body. Collectively, TENUMET TABLET controls blood sugar levels and improve glycemic control in patients with type II diabetes.
