Q. How to use Senzia?

Senzia 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. Pioglitazone acts as an insulin sensitizer and decreases the extent of insulin resistance in the body too.

Senzia increases the permeability of fluid in tiny blood vessels called capillaries.
