Linagliptin is an inhibitor of dipeptidyl peptidase-4, which is the above agitator amenable for the abasement of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), an important gastrointestinal hormone (incretin) that increases glucose abased insulin beard by the pancreas. By assiduity the aftereffect of GLP-1, linagliptin increases insulin levels and lowers claret glucose, thereby convalescent glycemic ascendancy in patients with blazon 2 diabetes. Linagliptin was accustomed for use in the United States in 2011 and was the third DPP-4 inhibitor alien into analytic practice. Its accepted break are for administration of glycemic ascendancy in blazon 2 diabetes acclimated in aggregate with diet and exercise, with or after added articulate hypoglycemic agents or insulin. Linagliptin is accessible in tablets of 5 mg beneath the cast name Tradjenta. The archetypal dosage of linagliptin in adults is 5 to 10 mg already daily. Adverse reactions to linagliptin are not common, but may cover headache, nausea, allergic reactions and rash. Hypoglycemia is aberrant with linagliptin abandoned (<1%), but occurs in college ante if it is accumulated with added articulate hypoglycemic agents. Linagliptin has been affiliated to attenuate instances (~0.2%) of pancreatitis.
