Actos contains a key component called as pioglitazone hydrochloride, which is a member of a category of drugs known as glitazones or thiazolidinediones. Actos regulates levels of blood sugar in diabetes type 2 patients.
People suffering from diabetes have an absence or scarcity of insulin – a hormone prepared by the pancreas. Insulin manages levels of sugar in blood. In type 2 diabetes patients, the pancreas becomes unable to produce the required quantity of insulin. The cells in the body resist to low levels of insulin. Insulin usually causes the cells to remove sugar from the blood. Insulin lacks this activity in diabetes patients.
