What is Adlyxin?
Adlyxin contains the prescription medicine lixisenatide. It is classed as an injectable diabetes medication to help control blood sugar levels. It is used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults, together with diet and exercise. Adlyxin is not for treating type 1 diabetes. This medication is not insulin and is not a substitute for insulin.
In type 2 diabetes you do produce insulin, but the body can not use it effectively. There is usually a combination of a part failure of insulin production and a reduced response to the hormone. This is known as insulin resistance. Research does not give us a clear idea why some people develop this and others don’t, but lifestyle factors, such as lack of exercise and excess body weight can contribute to type 2 diabetes.
Adlyxin active ingredients
Lixisenatide is known as a GLP-1 receptor agonist. It works by slowing the rate of digestion and the release of insulin in your body after eating, preventing your blood sugar level to rise.
Adlyxin is injected under the skin. You should take Adlyxin once a day within 60 minutes (1 hour) before your first meal of the day. You should also try to inject the medicine at the same time each day. It is important to rotate injection sites to maintain effective absorption of Adlyxin. Small fatty lumps or hard lumps could develop in areas that are continuously used as injection sites. These can interfere with Adlyxin absorption and also cause discomfort. Switching between injecting sites, for example, left and right arm or right and left thigh, and moving injection sites within the area will help prevent problems. Your healthcare provider should teach you the safest way to use the medication by yourself.
