Efficacy and Safety of Gliptins in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
2


Introduction: Gliptins are a new class of oral hypoglycemic agents that inhibit Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP- 4) and improve glycemic control through enhancement of the incretin axis. They are not associated with hypoglycemia and they do not cause weight gain. However, there is no Indian study about the efficacy and safety of DPP-4 inhibitors in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and chronic kidney disease (CKD).
