How Prandin Works

Prandin refers to the class of meglitinide anti-diabetic drugs. It stimulates the release of insulin from the pancreas by opening the calcium channels of the pancreas beta cells. The increase in insulin release lowers the blood sugar levels. The reason why we do not use Prandin for diabetes mellitus of the 1st type is that the pancreas in such condition cannot release insulin at all, which cannot be changed by any Prandin mg dose.

As proved by the clinical trials, there is a link between Prandin and weight gain. Those patients that started Prandin treatment after previous hypoglycemic treatment experienced an average weight gain of 3,3% (of not previously treated by sulfonylurea medications).

How Should I Use Prandin

Prandin diabetes treatment should be received according to the doctor’s prescription. This is what you should know about taking your prescribed Prandin mg dose before you purchase Prandin:
