How does JENTADUETO XR work?

How does JENTADUETO XR work?

JENTADUETO XR is a combination of two medications. Linagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. It works by blocking DPP-4, a protein that breaks down certain hormones in your body. These hormones normally tell your body to make more insulin and produce less sugar. When DPP-4 causes these hormone levels to drop, you end up having high blood sugar levels. By blocking the action of DPP-4, linagliptin helps your body produce more insulin and make less sugar. In doing so, linagliptin helps lower your blood sugar levels. Metformin is a biguanide that lowers blood sugar in several ways. It lowers the amount of sugar that your liver makes. It also makes your body more sensitive to the effects of insulin. When your body is able to use insulin better, it can move more blood sugar into your cells to use as energy. In addition, metformin lowers the amount of sugar that gets absorbed through your intestines. As a result of these three pathways, metformin helps lower the amount of sugar in your bloodstream.
