FAQs

Q. Can Gliptra cause hypoglycemia?

Yes, Gliptra can cause hypoglycemia. The episodes of hypoglycemia are more common when other antidiabetic drugs and insulin are given in combination with Gliptra.

Q. Is Gliptra the same as metformin?

No, Gliptra is not the same as metformin. Although both are antidiabetic medications, their way of acting is different. Gliptra acts by improving the utilization of glucose by the body and increasing satiety (feeling full) and by delaying the emptying of the stomach. This makes the person feel full for longer and decreases the urge to eat. On the other hand, Metformin acts by varied mechanisms like it decreases the glucose production from the liver, decreases absorption of glucose from the intestine after taking food, and improves the sensitivity of the body organ and muscles to insulin. This helps improve the uptake of glucose from the blood.

Q. Is Gliptra safe in diabetic patients with kidney failure?

Yes, there is evidence that suggests that Gliptra is safe to use in patients who have developed renal failure due to diabetes. It improves blood sugar control in diabetics and also improves kidney function in impaired kidney disease associated with diabetes.

Q. What is the role of Gliptra?

Gliptra is a medicine that is prescribed in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus along with diet control and exercise. It is given alone when the patient has kidney problems and cannot be prescribed metformin. It may also be given as combination therapy along with insulin or other antidiabetic drugs to adequately control the blood glucose level.
