Actos® or Metformin®

Actos and Metformin are both used to treat Type 2 diabetes. They lower blood sugar and reduce the amount of glucose the liver releases by increasing cell insulin sensitivity. Despite the two medications doing the same thing, you have to take a medication response test to know which one is better for your body. How medication is metabolized by your body depends on whether it’s compatible with your genetics or not. Actos vs Metformin medication response test will help you identify which one will be easily metabolized by your body without any side effects. Your genetic profile influences how your body will respond to a medication and you can’t be sure without taking a medication response genetic test.
