I am aged 67 diabe3tic for last 20 years, Breakfast wheat/Long wheat items.Taking Tab Istavel 100 mg 1-0-0.,Semitribet 1 .1-0- at the advice of my doctor since last 5 months.Present reading.fasting 120 ,after food 145.
About the Tablet Istavel 100mg, I am reproducing some information found in the articles appeared in Malayalam Health magazines written by Dr. B. Padma Kumar,Addl. Professor ,Med. college, Alleppey & Dr. K.P. Poulose,Chief Physician& Diabatologist, S U T Hospital, Trivandrum. Researchers in the recent past (after 2006) found that a hormone (Incretin group) is produced from small intestine, lever etc.. in the human body. But with in 2 to 3 minutes these hormones get inactivated by an enzyme (DPP 4). Here the function of the medicine Gliptin (Istavel) is to inhibit the action of the enzyme and thus increasing the production of insulin resulting in the reduction of blood sugar level propotionate to the food intake.This tablet can be used along with medicines containing Metformin the article says.
