HCL Metformin is a medication used for the regulation of blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetic and pre-diabetic patients. It is also used to treat anovulation in women with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and other hormonal disorders that lead to infertility. It is paired with diet and exercise for maximum results.
Metformin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. It is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes when diet and physical exercise alone are not sufficient to achieve adequate levels of normal blood sugar in adults, in children from 10 Years of age and adolescents. Insulin is a hormone that allows tissues to pick up glucose (sugar) from the blood and use it as energy or to store it for future use.
Patients with type 2 diabetes do not synthesize enough insulin in the pancreas or their body does not respond adequately to the insulin they produce. This causes an increase in blood glucose. Metformin improves the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which helps restore the way the body uses glucose. In overweight adult diabetic patients, long-term use of metformin also helps reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes.
You should not use metformin if you are allergic to it, or if you have:
