DEAR SIR/MADAM.
POST ANGIOPLASTY AND KIDNEY DISEASE PATIENTS, WITH DIABETES NEEDS TO BE TREATED WITH CAUTIOUS MEDICINE. WE SHOULD AVOID THE DRUGS SUCH AS BLISTO 1 MF SINCE IN CONTAINS GLIMEPERIDE 1 MG AND METFORMIN 500 MG, AS GLIMIPERIDE IS INTERMEDIATE TO LONG ACTING DRUG WHICH MAY CAUSE PROLONGED HYPOGLYCEMIA IN KIDNEY FAILURE PATIENTS. EVEN PATIENT SHOULD BE STOPPED GIVING METFORMIN, INSTEAD PATIENT SHOULD BE ADVICED TO TAKE SHORT ACTING, RENAL FREINDLY PREPARATIONS SUCH AS GLICLAZIDE OR SHORTER ACTING INSULINS. THERE IS ONE MORE OPTION, MEGLITINIDES GROUPS OF DRUGS SUCH AS REPAGLINIDE CAN BE TAKEN INSTEAD OF SHORTER ACTING INSULINS WHICH REDUCES THE INCIDENCE OF HYPOGLYCEMIA. I PREFER A PROTON PUMP INHIBITOR WITH PROKINETIC DRUG THAT IS PANTAPRAZOLE WITH DOMPERIDONE INSTEAD OF RANTAC - D .
