Actos is used to treat type 2 diabetes, a condition in which the body has trouble producing insulin and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood. Actos increases the body’s sensitivity to insulin, allowing cells to use insulin more efficiently.
According to Actos’ website, Actos is used with a diet and exercise program to control type 2 diabetes. It is not used to treat type 1 diabetes, a condition in which the body does not produce insulin.
