How ACTOS works?
ACTOS is oral hypoglycemic agent, a derivative of THIOZOLIDINEDIONE series. You can buy ACTOS online without prescription if you need it. Medication is selective and powerful agonist of peroxisome proliferator-γ activated receptors (PPAR-γ). PPAR-γ receptors are found in muscle tissues, adipose tissues and liver tissues. Activation of PPAR-γ nuclear receptor modulates the transcription of several genes sensitive to insulin, which is involved in glucose and lipid metabolism control. ACTOS reduces insulin resistance in liver and peripheral tissues, thus the consumption of glucose and insulin increases and glucose production by the liver decreases. Unlike SULFONYLUREAS, ACTOS does not stimulate pancreas β-cells insulin secretion. You can buy ACTOS for type 2 diabetes treatment.
In type 2 diabetes (insulin-dependent) reduction of insulin resistance leads to lower blood glucose levels, lower levels of plasma insulin and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c, glycated hemoglobin) under the effect of ACTOS action.
In type 2 diabetes (insulin dependent) with lipid disorders triglycerides level decreases and HDL cholesterol level increases during treatment with ACTOS. The level of total cholesterol and LDL in patients of this type doesn't change. If you have this type of diabetes, you should buy ACTOS.
