Pioglitazone 30mg

Pioglitazone (Diavista) is used to help to control the amount of sugar in the blood so that a person isnít going to have spikes and significant decreases. Regulating blood sugar is the key to having a good quality of life with Type 2 Diabetes. The balance is very important to the overall health of the individual. In addition to taking this particular medicine, the patient needs to life a lifestyle that includes exercise and eating a balanced diet.

When Pioglitazone is being used, the person isnít going to be as sensitive to insulin. This means that the body will use it correctly instead of not being sure what to do with it. pioglitazone is an oral product that has to be taken every single day. If doses are missed then the levels of sugar in the blood wonít be regulated as they need to be. It isnít a good idea to use more of pioglitazone than the doctor has prescribed.

The lowest possible dose of Pioglitazone will be given for the first couple of weeks. Then the doctor will evaluate how the patient feels and their blood sugar levels. It may be necessary to increase the amount of pioglitazone over the course of a couple of months. By the 3rd month, a patient should have the right dose and be experiencing significant improvements in how they feel.

Some patients stop taking pioglitazone once they start to feel better. You need to make sure you continue to take it though. It should be taken at the same time of day as much as possible. If nausea occurs, take Pioglitazone with food to reduce that side effect. It is possible for various side effects to occur initially, they include muscle pain, pain in the extremities, and headaches.

There could be some severe side effects that you must report immediately to medical staff. Should you experience changes in your vision, you notice any blood in your urine, or you have pain that affects your abdomen and back it could indicate that you are having an allergic reaction to pioglitazone. Pioglitazone can increase the risk of liver problems so your doctor will need to check it periodically as well.
