My Negative Actos Experience

My Negative Actos Experience

Admin Update: Click here to read more actos experiences ! My doctor gave me a combination of Glipizide and Actose. I was overweight at that time, as the months went by on the two drugs I kept gaining weight and gaining weight, as my diabetes doctor noted every time I visited him for my check up. My appetite increased and I knew that Id soon be 300 lbs if something werent done. Finally the doctor admitted that Actose does make you gain weight. I went to the library and read in the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) that Actose makes the body retain water and fat so I knew what had to be done. I stopped taking the Actose but continued with the Glipizide, taking 2 pills instead of one during the first meal each day. Immediately after I stopped taking Actose I started losing weight and my appetite decreased. Not only did I lose weight and stop eating, but also my sugar levels went down. I started to have, with only the two Glipizides, normal sugar levels due to the fact that I was eating a lot less. When the doctor first gave me Actose it had not been on the market very long. When he realized I was continuously gaining weight from it he wanted me quit. He adamantly insisted that I switch to a new, injectable drug that just came out on the market. Because of the fact that the drug was injectable and new to the market I refused to take it. The fact that he was so adamant that I stop using Actose and switch to the new drug confirmed my belief that I was right that Actose was not a good drug for me to use. Still, he refused to admit that I gained more than 5 lbs from the Actose, yet now three months after not using Actose Ive lost close to 30 lbs. If theres any similar stories about Actose, please let me know. What dosage of Actos are you on? I take Actos 45mgs. I've put on some Continue reading >>

8 Natural Alternatives To Actos And Metformin

If you suffer from Type 2 diabetes, there is a good chance that you’ve had a discussion with your doctor about the prescription drug Metformin. It is often initiated at the diagnosis of diabetes and helps to reduce blood sugars in an effective way. The problem however with this solution is its inability to work for everyone. Additionally, many users of Metformin may find the side effects of this drug extremely bothersome. The first thing to remember is that the development of Type 1 diabetes is not your fault, no matter what your medical providers might have you believe. Diabetes is caused by your body’s inability to process, driving up your blood sugars. However, Type 2 diabetes (adult onset) can be avoided many times and even reversed with the right diet, exercise program and proper natural herbs and vitamins. Dealing with High Blood Sugar Levels Maintaining your blood sugar levels into acceptable ranges is critically necessary to maintain your quality of life, which means your routines are going to be changing no matter what you do. High blood sugars can cause nerve and kidney damage, so it is important to act now. Whether you want to avoid prescription medication, or suffer with current side effects, many natural alternatives exist for Metformin. These options may be able to effectively treat your diabetes and help you feel back in control again 8 Natural Alternatives to Metformin 1. Lifestyle Changes: For many that suffer with Type 2 diabetes, basic lifestyle changes are often the primary thing that is necessary for treatment of their disease. For many people, this means an increased level of exercise and an improvement in their overall nutrition. The goal of these lifestyle changes is to get on an effective weight loss plan that is combined with higher levels Continue reading >>

Actos

Actos

Actos (pioglitazone) is an oral Type 2 diabetes drug that lowers blood sugar by decreasing insulin resistance and reducing the amount of glucose made in the liver. This allows the body to better dispose of excess blood sugar. Typically, the dose starts at 15 or 30 mg and is taken once a day, but some people may require a stronger dose. Doctors can increase the strength of the medicine by 15 mg increments to a maximum of 45 mg daily. However, numerous studies and a review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) link higher dosages and prolonged use to an increased risk of bladder cancer and other serious conditions. Actos is not intended to treat Type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. The drug can be used alone or with other Type 2 diabetes medicines such as metformin. There are two additional types of Actos that combine pioglitazone and metformin: Actoplus Met and Actoplus Met XR (extended release). What Does Actos Treat? Actos is approved to treat Type 2 diabetes in adults by improving glycemic (defined as causing glucose – sugar – in the blood) control. The drug comes in a tablet form to be taken by mouth daily and should be used in combination with diet and exercise. People with Type 2 diabetes do not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates the amount of glucose in the blood. It moves blood sugar into cells where it is stored for later use as energy. Type 2 diabetes results in higher than normal levels of glucose because glucose does not enter cells. The body is then unable to use the glucose for energy. Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease that can develop at any age, including during childhood. However, it mostly occurs in middle-aged and older people. The condition often develops slowly over t Continue reading >>

Pioglitazone and metformin fixed-dose combination in type 2 diabetes mellitus: an evidence-based review of its place in therapy Giuseppe Derosa and Sibilla Anna Teresa Salvadeo Type 2 diabetes mellitus, a metabolic disease with increasing incidence, is one of the most important cardiovascular risk factors. Insulin resistance represents the common mechanism that leads to type 2 diabetes in obese subjects. Metformin and the thiazolidinediones, pioglitazone and rosiglitazone, are insulin-sensitizing agents available for treatment of type 2 diabetes. Large clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of both metformin and pioglitazone in reducing cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The fixed-dose combination of metformin and pioglitazone appears to be a good option for treating diabetes in insulin-resistant patients. The purpose of this article is to review the place in therapy of a fixed-dose combination of pioglitazone and metformin in the management of patients with type 2 diabetes. The current evidence suggests that combined therapy may help to achieve the recommended goals in the management of diabetes. A fixed-dose formulation of pioglitazone and metformin may provide advantages in terms of glycemic control and other cardiovascular risk factor Continue reading >>

Comparison Of The Effects Of Pioglitazone And Metformin On Hepatic And Extra-hepatic Insulin Action In People With Type 2 Diabetes

Comparison Of The Effects Of Pioglitazone And Metformin On Hepatic And Extra-hepatic Insulin Action In People With Type 2 Diabetes

Objective: To determine mechanisms by which pioglitazone and metformin effect hepatic and extra-hepatic insulin action. Research Design and Methods: Thirty-one subjects with type 2 diabetes were randomly assigned to pioglitazone (45 mg) or metformin (2,000 mg) for 4 months. Results: Glucose was clamped before and after therapy at 5 mmol/l, insulin raised to 180 pmol/l, C-peptide suppressed with somatostatin, glucagon replaced at 75 pg/ml, and glycerol maintained at 200 mmol/l to ensure comparable and equal portal concentrations on all occasions. Insulin-induced stimulation of glucose disappearance did not differ before and after treatment with either pioglitazone (23 3 vs. 24 2 mol kg-1 min-1) or metformin (22 2 vs. 24 3 mol kg-1 min-1). In contrast, pioglitazone enhanced (P < 0.01) insulin-induced suppression of both glucose production (6.0 1.0 vs. 0.2 1.6 mol kg-1 min-1) and gluconeogenesis (n = 11; 4.5 0.9 vs. 0.8 1.2 mol kg-1 min-1). Metformin did not alter either suppression of glucose production (5.8 1.0 vs. 5.0 0.8 mol kg-1 min-1) or gluconeogenesis (n = 9; 3.7 0.8 vs. 2.6 0.7 mol kg-1 min-1). Insulin-induced suppression of free fatty acids was greater (P < 0.05) after treatment with pioglitazone (0.14 0.03 vs. 0.06 0.01 mmol/l) but unchanged with metformin (0.12 0.03 vs. 0.15 0.07 mmol/l). Conclusions: Thus, relative to metformin, pioglitazone improves hepatic insulin action in people with type 2 diabetes, partly by enhancing insulin-induced suppression of gluconeogenesis. On the other hand, both drugs have comparable effects on insulin-induced stimulation of glucose uptake. Thiazolidinediones and metformin are extensively used to treat people with type 2 diabetes. Both are considered to be insulin "sensitizers".[ 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 ] However, the mechanism of a Continue reading >>

After initiation of ACTOPLUS MET, and after dose increases, monitor patients carefully for signs and symptoms of heart failure (e.g., excessive, rapid weight gain, dyspnea, and/or edema). If heart failure develops, it should be managed according to current standards of care and discontinuation or dose reduction of ACTOPLUS MET must be considered [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS ]. ACTOPLUS MET is not recommended in patients with symptomatic heart failure. Initiation of ACTOPLUS MET in patients with established New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure is contraindicated [see CONTRAINDICATIONS and WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS ]. Lactic acidosis is a rare but serious complication that can occur due to metformin accumulation. The risk increases with conditions such as sepsis, dehydration, excess alcohol intake, hepatic impairment, renal impairment, and acute congestive heart failure [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS ]. The onset is often subtle, accompanied only by nonspecific symptoms such as malaise, myalgias, respiratory distress, increasing somnolence, and nonspecific abdominal distress. Laboratory abnormalities include low pH, increased anion gap, and elevated blood lactate [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS ].

Pioglitazone/metformin

Pioglitazone/metformin

Pioglitazone/metformin (also known by the brand names Actoplus Met, Piomet and Politor) is combination of two oral diabetes medications pioglitazone and metformin. The two oral antihyperglycemic agents with different mechanisms of action are used to improve glycemic control in patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. Mechanisms[edit] Pioglitazone is a member of the thiazolidinedione class, it decreases insulin resistance in the periphery and in the liver resulting in increased insulin dependent glucose disposal and decreased hepatic glucose output. Metformin is a member of the biguanide class, improves glucose tolerance in patients with type 2 diabetes, lowering both basal and postprandial plasma glucose. Metformin decreases hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. Indication[edit] Pioglitazone/metformin is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise: To improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes, or For patients who are already treated with a separate combination of pioglitazone and metformin, For patients whose diabetes is not adequately controlled with metformin alone, or For patients who have initially responded to pioglitazone alone and require additional glycemic control. Dosage and administration[edit] Recommended dose[edit] Use of antihyperglycemic agents in the management of type 2 diabetes should be individualized on the basis of effectiveness and tolerability. Pioglitazone/metformin should be given with meals; the initial starting dose is either the 15 mg/500 mg or 15 mg/850 mg tablet strength once or twice daily, and gradually titrated after assessing adequacy of therapeutic response, while not exceeding the maximum recommend Continue reading >>

Metformin And Pioglitazone Overview

Metformin And Pioglitazone Overview

Metformin/pioglitazone is a prescription medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It is a single product containing 2 medications: pioglitazone and metformin. Pioglitazone belongs to a group of drugs called thiazolidinediones. These work by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin. Metformin belongs to a group of drugs called biguanides. These work by decreasing the amount of glucose absorbed from food and decreasing the amount of glucose that is produced by the liver. This medication comes in tablet form and is taken one or two times a day, with food. Common side effects of metformin/pioglitazone include upper respiratory tract infection, edema, diarrhea, headache, muscle pain, and weight gain. In combination with other medications to treat diabetes, metformin/pioglitazone can also cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), which can cause blurred vision and dizziness. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how metformin/pioglitazone affects you. Continue reading >>
