Pioglitazone is a thiazolinedione that enhances the transcription of insulin responsive genes. Pioglitazone improves the entry of glucose in to muscles and fats. Actos suppresses hepatic gluconeogenesis. Actos has glucose sensitizing action due to activation of genes that regulate fatty acid metabolism and lipogenesis in adipose tissue. Actos reduces blood glucose level without increasing circulating insulin. Actos is used to supplement sulfonyl ureas or metformin in type 2 diabetes mellitus or in case of insulin resistance. Pioglitazone can also be used as monotherapy along with diet and exercise in mild cases and to supplement insulin in advanced cases.
