How Istamet 50mg/1000mg Tablet works

Istamet 50mg/1000mg Tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Sitagliptin and metformin. Sitagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor which works by increasing the release of insulin from pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood sugar levels. This reduces both fasting and postmeal sugar levels. Metformin is a biguanide which decreases the production and absorption of sugar in your body and allows better use of existing insulin. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar.
