Product introduction

Lipaglyn Tablet is a medicine used in the treatment of Noncirrhotic Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis, Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) with comorbidities (like obesity, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Dyslipidemia or Metabolic Syndrome), and high cholesterol in diabetes (diabetic dyslipidemia).

Lipaglyn Tablet may be taken with or without food, at the same time each day, to get the most benefit and you should not stop taking it unless your doctor recommends it. It is important to stay on the diet and exercise program recommended by your doctor while taking this medicine. Your lifestyle plays a big part in maintaining a healthy body weight, which will help protect your liver to a great extent.

The most common side effects of this medicine are flatulence, indigestion, abdominal distension, and weakness. These are usually not severe. Please consult your doctor if the side effects worry you or if they do not go away.

Before taking this medicine, let your doctor know if you have ever had kidney disease, heart or pancreas problems, or if you drink a lot of alcohol. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also consult their doctor before taking it. Some other medicines you are taking may interfere with it so make sure your doctor knows about all the other medicines you are using. Limit your alcohol intake while taking this medicine because it can degrade your liver health. You may need regular tests such as liver function test, kidney function and blood glucose levels to check that the medicine is working properly.

Uses of Lipaglyn Tablet

Benefits of Lipaglyn Tablet

In Noncirrhotic Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis

Noncirrhotic non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is liver inflammation and damage caused by excess fat in the liver. Because of the damage, the liver doesn't work as well as it should. Lipaglyn Tablet reduces fat deposition thereby improving its overall functioning.

In Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is a condition in which there is an increased buildup of fat in the liver. It affects people who drink little to no alcohol. Lipaglyn Tablet protects the liver and reduces the risk of liver failure.

In Diabetic dyslipidemia (high cholesterol in diabetes)

Lipaglyn Tablet helps in the management of high cholesterol, as well as blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It is mainly used in people whose cholesterol levels are not controlled by statin therapy alone. By controlling high cholesterol levels, Lipaglyn Tablet helps reduce the risk of heart diseases.

Side effects of Lipaglyn Tablet

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How to use Lipaglyn Tablet

Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break it. Lipaglyn Tablet may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.

How Lipaglyn Tablet works

Lipaglyn Tablet contains Saroglitazar, a dual action peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) inhibitor that aids in the management of high cholesterol, especially triglycerides, as well as blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It acts by a unique mechanism in which it reduces the synthesis and secretion of triglycerides (a type of lipid or cholesterol in blood). It also improves insulin sensitivity of the body for better utilization of the existing insulin and hence lowers the blood sugar levels.
