How Pioglitazone Works
Actos is used to treat type 2 diabetes. Actos should be used in combination with a balanced diet and exercise. It helps control blood sugar levels in the body by reducing insulin resistance- a condition in which the body’s cells don’t respond to a hormone (called insulin) that allows them to turn blood sugar into energy. When you eat, food is broken down into different products that can be used by your body. One of those products is glucose, or sugar. In order to process glucose into energy the pancreas produces insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is needed to let sugar into the body’s cells. For people with Type 2 Diabetes the body cannot produce enough insulin to properly use the sugar in their blood. Eventually, the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin. When this happens, Pioglitazone can be used..
Generic Actos vs Brand Actos
Brand and generic actos are chemically and therapeutically the same, meaning that they both produce the exact same results and work the same way within the body. The main difference between the brand and the generic Actos is the manufacturer, the brand is manufactured by Eli Lilly and the generic will be manufactured outside of an Eli Lilly facility. Although, there may be more than one generic manufacturer, Blue Sky Drugs dispenses primarily Cipla brand generic Actos. Whether you choose to order the Brand or generic Actos rest assured that Blue Sky Drugs provides only the safest medications from trusted, sources. Satisfaction is always guaranteed!
