'DPP-4 inhibitors are very safe drug to be added to as a second line drug for control of diabetes and it is very effective also in patients, especially with very high HbA1c. There is a reduction to almost 1-1.2 of HbA1c without major side effects of hypoglycemia or weight gain, which are the most important factors with these drugs.'


Dr. Ashish Rohatgi, Consultant Physician, Tirath Ram Shah Hospital, Delhi spoke to Dr. Shahu Ingole on Wockhardt RSSDI tv 2018 (streaming live on TheRightDoctors.com). This is what he said:


'Studies have said teneligliptin is very effective & efficacious and has got a similar sort of side effect profile than other DPP-4 inhibitors which are very costly.'

  • " DPP- 4 inhibitors: Beneficial in terms of safety for a patient with high HbA1c "


'Because it is used so much in India and Asian countries, there is data being derived for teneligliptin and it is very efficacious & safe for use.'


'Only thing I would like to mention is probably there is still an issue of QTc prolongation with it, though in clinical practice, I have not seen too much of any risk factors, we should be careful using it in a cardiac patient.'

  • " DPP -4 inhibitor is effective & can be afforded by most of the Indian population "
