The generic medicinal ingredient in Trajenta is linagliptin, which is prescribed to type 2 diabetes patients. Trajenta improves the levels of insulin when the blood sugar level is high and helps to decrease the amount of sugar made by the body.
In addition to diet and exercise, doctors prescribe Trajenta to patients with type 2 diabetes to improve control of blood sugar. Trajenta can be used alone in patients who cannot take metformin or in combination with metformin. This medication can also be used in combination with a sulfonylurea drug, or in combination with metformin and a sulfonylurea drug.
Trajenta belongs to a class of medicines called DPP-4 inhibitors (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors). It works by increasing the amount of incretin released by the intestine. Incretin is a hormone that raises insulin levels when blood sugar is high (especially after a meal) and decreases the amount of sugar made by the body.
The usual adult dose is 5mg once daily, taken orally with or without food.

Once known as “adult-onset” diabetes, type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body either does not produce enough insulin or there is a resistance to the insulin’s action at the cell level. Signs of type 2 diabetes may not appear for many years but as the disease progresses, symptoms may include dry, itchy skin, increased thirst, increased urinary frequency, numbness in the hands and feet, slow healing of cuts and fatigue. The main goal of treatment is to keep glucose levels as normal as possible to prevent damage in the body. Type 2 diabetes is often associated with being overweight. Losing weight can help lower blood glucose levels. Diet and exercise are very important in managing this disease and may be all that is necessary.
If healthy eating and exercise are not enough to lower blood glucose levels, your doctor may prescribe medication such as Trajenta 5mg.
