The article examines the impact of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitors on glycemic control and cardiovascular risk factors. Examples of DPP-4 inhibitors include sitagliptin, glucophage, vildagliptin, linagliptin, alogliptin and saxagliptin. These inhibitors are different in their metabolism, excretion, recommended dosage and daily dosage that are required for effective treatment. Nasopharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection and headache are the most commonly reported side effects of DPP-4 inhibitors.
