About the effectiveness of Glactiv tablets 100 mg for type 2 diabetes from Japan
Japanese tablets Glactiv 100 mg improve blood glucose level in patients with type 2 diabetes. One tablet contains 100 mg of sitagliptin, a substance that inhibits an enzyme called dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4). This enzyme breaks down hormones that stabilize blood glucose level after the meal. By preventing it, the production of insulin is increased.
Glactiv tablets also provide temporary suppression of glucagon. It allows to increase the insulin production and to stabilize the glucose amount. But when the blood glucose level reaches normal, the suppression of glucagon stops, thus, preventing hypoglycemia. In addition, Glactiv tablets do not cause weight gain and can be used in combination with other medicines.
Moreover, studies show that sitagliptin is safe, well-tolerated and does not increase the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (D. Williams-Herman, S. S. Engel et al. Safety and tolerability of sitagliptin in clinical studies: a pooled analysis of data from 10,246 patients with type 2 diabetes. BMC Endocrine Disorders, 2010, 10:7).
