How it works
Metformin restores the body's ability to use insulin, lowering the blood sugar levels. Metformin also decreases the amount of glucose absorbed from food in the intestine and decreases glucose production in the liver.
Teneligliptin increases the amount of insulin released by the pancreas, which in turn lowers the blood glucose levels.
