What is Diavista?
Diavista containing the active ingredient pioglitazone hydrochloride is considered a thiazolidinedione type of medication also known as glitazones. It works by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin to help control blood sugar levels. Controlling high blood sugar levels can help prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs and sexual function problems. It can be used alone or with other medications along with a proper diet and exercise program to treat patients with type 2 diabetes. Proper control of diabetes can decrease the risk of a heart attack or stroke.

How is Diavista used?
Diavista is usually taken orally once daily or as directed by a doctor. The tablet can be taken with or without food but should be taken with some water. Contact a doctor for correct dosage as it will depend on the patient’s condition and their response to the medication. The recommended maximum dosage for the medication is 45mg every 24 hours. To decrease the chance of side effects, the patient may be prescribed a low initial dose and gradually increased to optimal dosage.
