How much is the glycosylated haemoglobin expected to decrease when a TZD is administered

With the administration of a TZD the glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) is expected to decrease by about 1.0-1.6 percent (especially if the initial level is over 8 percent), and the fasting blood glucose level is expected to decrease by 50-70 mg/dl (2.8-3.9 mmol/L). The maximal recommended dose of rosiglitazone is 4 mg twice a day and of piogli-tazone 45 mg once a day, independent from the intake of food. The usual initial dose is 2-4 mg daily for rosiglitazone and 15-30 mg daily for pioglitazone.
