how worksHow Wedica 100mg 16 Tablet, Beacon Works
By inhibiting the activity of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 Trelagliptin inactivates glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) from secretion from the intestines to the blood via stimulation from oral intake of food, increases GLP-1 blood concentration and promotes blood glucose concentration-dependent insulin secretion from the pancreas. Glucagon is a peptide hormone, produced by alpha cells of the pancreas. It works to raise the concentration of glucose in the bloodstream. Incretins are a group of metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in blood glucose levels. They also inhibit glucagon release from the alpha cells of the islets of Langerhans. DPP-4 plays a major role in glucose metabolism. It is responsible for the degradation of incretins and increase blood glucose level.
