Default Three Type 2 Diabetes Pills From Takeda Approved By FDA

(Is wise to wait at least 5 years post introduction of new drug to see what side effects appear if any after massive marketing. Massive use by the population is sometime different than a drug trial. Anyway there are probably safer alternatives already that have been in use for many years, you may not need the added risk of new drug. The problem generally is that they recommend diet and exercise with the new drug. But the high carb diet they recommend for sure will not help control the diabetes so the need for more and more potent drugs use is guarantee.)

Three Type 2 Diabetes Pills From Takeda Approved By FDA

Nesina (alogliptin) tablets, Oseni (alogliptin and pioglitazone) tablets, and Kazano (alogliptin and metformin hydrochloride) tablets, for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, for use along with diet and exercise, have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
They are designed to improve blood sugar control.


Nesina is a DPP-4i (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor). It is designed to slow down the inactivation of incretin hormones GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide).


Kazano is a combination of alogliptin and metformin HCl, a extensively used anti-diabetes medication, in a single tablet.


Oseni, a combination of alogliptin and pioglitazone, is the first medication in the USA to include both a DPP-4i and a TZD (thiazolidinedione) in a single tablet.

I'm not sure if 5 years is even long enough. I'll just stick with my diet as it is and hope that'll keep me off all drugs, but metaformin would be okay I'd think if I do finally need one.
