Metformin is a biguanide anti-diabetic medication that works by lowering hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. Teneligliptin works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones that raise blood glucose levels thereby reducing the fasting and post-meal sugar levels. The combination is thus better effective in lowering blood glucose levels.
