ozomet pg2 was given by doctor is it good?? or shall i have ozomet vg2?? what is the difference between twoideal TD vitamin tablet any substitute can i have??Voglibose or Pioglitazone ??? which is less in side effect?? for the age of 48!!
Dr. Sfurti Mann
Voglibose and pioglitazone both are medications used for diabetes but there mechanism of action is different and so are their side effects. Voglibose acts to reduce post prandial blood glucose whereas pioglitazone improves insulin sensitivity and improves glycemic control. Voglibose causes gastric side effects and sometimes affects the liver whereas pioglitazone should not be given to patients with heart ailments as it can worsen heart failure.
