Pizaccord Tablets are specifically designed for treating type 2 diabetes which is not adequately controlled by diet. The tablets can be used in combination with other medications, but should not be used to treat type 1 diabetes.
Pizaccord Tablets work by reducing the amount of sugar produced by your liver, while increasing your bodys sensitivity to insulin.
This helps control the level of glucose in the blood. The result is a reduced risk of vision and nerve problems, as well as kidney damage. Managing diabetes properly may also reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
