What is Kazano used for?

Kazano (also known as Nesina Met or Vipdomet) is a combination of alogliptin and metformin and is used in combination with a diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar can help prevent nerve problems, kidney damage, blindness, and sexual function problems. You can also lessen your risk of a stroke or heart attack by controlling diabetes.

Kazano contains 2 medications: alogliptin and metformin. Alogliptin works by increasing the levels of incretins. Incretins are a natural substance that helps to control blood sugar levels by increasing the release of insulin, especially after a meal. They also decrease the amount of sugar made by the liver. Metformin works to help restore your body’s proper response to your naturally produced insulin. It also helps decreased the amount of sugar made by your liver and that your intestines/stomach absorb.
