Q. Can Path be used along with sitagliptin?
Combination therapy with Sitagliptin and Path leads to a substantial and sustained improvement in glycemic (blood sugar) control compared to the treatment with Path alone. This is useful for patients who cannot tolerate Metformin or Sulfonylureas.
Q. Is there any role of Path in Alzheimer disease?

Q. Can Path and repaglinide combined in diabetes treatment?
For patients who previously failed oral antidiabetic therapy, the combination of Repaglinide and Path have acceptable safety, with greater reductions of glycemic parameters (blood sugar levels) than using either agent alone.
Q. Does Path cause urinary bladder tumour?
Large population studies indicate that Path is associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer. The absence of an association of bladder cancer with the other drug of the same class, Rosiglitazone, suggests that the increased risk is drug specific and not a class effect.
Q. Can Path be used along with glimepiride in diabetes?
Path when added to Glimepiride in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus, has been found to significantly reduce plasma lipid levels and significant improvement in blood pressure control related to a reduction in the insulin resistance.
No. Path is not a steroid. It is an anti-diabetic medication which belongs to the class of thiazolidinediones.
Path is an anti-diabetes drug used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. Path acts as an insulin sensitizer and decreases the extent of insulin resistance in the body too.
Path cardiovascular safety profile compares favourably with that of Rosiglitazone. Path has been found to be associated with bladder tumours but causality assessment has not been proved yet.
Q. How does Path cause oedema?
Path increases the permeability of fluid in tiny blood vessels called capillaries. This results in easier movement of fluids across the membrane and their consequent accumulation, resulting in oedema (puffiness). Also, Path causes increased sodium and water reabsorption from the kidney that contributes to the oedema.
Q. How does Path cause bladder cancer?
The mechanism behind the link between Path use and bladder cancer is still unknown. Studies have suggested that use of Path for more than one year results in increased risk of development of tumour of the urinary bladder.
Q. How Path protects against atherosclerosis?
Studies in animals have concluded that Path improves the elasticity of the aortic wall ( the aorta is a large blood vessel that arises from the heart and supplies oxygenated blood to the rest of the body). This may be a mechanism by which it protects against atherosclerosis, but more studies are needed to confirm this.
Q. Can Path be used with insulin?
The addition of Path reduces daily insulin dosages, but study findings have not been consistent. Improvement of lipid profiles has also been weak with this combination therapy. Long-term studies are needed before any conclusions can be reached. Combination therapy should be primarily used for patients who achieve an insufficient reduction in blood sugar with insulin alone.
Q. Can Path used for dementia?
Findings indicate that Path treatment is associated with a reduced dementia risk in Diabetes mellitus patients. Prospective studies are needed to evaluate a possible neuroprotective effect in these patients in an ageing population.

Q. Can Path used for autism?
In a research study in a small number of autistic children, daily treatment with 30 or 60 mg Path for 3–4 months induced apparent clinical improvement. Path should be considered for further testing of therapeutic potential in autistic patients but as of now, autism is not an approved indication for Path use.
