FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q) How does TENELIGLIPTIN 20 MG + METFORMIN 1000 MG work? A) Glucose is one of the important components required for energy production. After digestion, glucose molecules enter bloodstream. This blood glucose needs to enter cells to be converted into energy. Normally, insulin (a hormone) takes care of this. But in diabetic patients, insulin is not produced in required amounts. As a result, glucose is not taken up by the cells and remains in blood. This increases blood sugar levels. TENELIGLIPTIN 20 MG + METFORMIN 1000 MG increases insulin levels and reduces glucose production by liver. These two processes help to keep blood glucose level in check.
