How Istamet 50/500mg Tablet 15's Works

Sitagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. It works by increasing the amount of insulin released by beta cells of pancreases and decreasing the amount of sugar. DPP-4 is required for release of GLP-1 which stimulates insulin release, so GLP-1 concentration increases and causes release of insulin. It also inhibits glucagon release.
