MECHANISM OF ACTION

Pioglitazone often referred to as an "insulin sensitizer" because it acts on cells throughout the body and causes the cell to become more sensitive (more responsive) to insulin. As a result, more glucose is taken into the cells (absorbed) from the blood, and the level of glucose in the blood reduces. Pioglitazone also lowers the level of glucose in the blood by reducing the production of glucose by the liver. It also decreases triglycerides and increases the "good" (HDL) cholesterol.
