Q. Can Piokind be used along with glimepiride in diabetes?

Also, Piokind causes increased sodium and water reabsorption from the kidney that contributes to the oedema.

Studies in animals have concluded that Piokind 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.
