Gluformin-XL uses and description

Sort by popularity
Gluformin-XL - Gluformin-XL (originally sold as Glucophage) is an oral anti-diabetic drug. It is the first-line drug of choice for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, particularly in overweight and obese people and those with normal kidney function. Evidence is also mounting for its efficacy in gestational diabetes, although safety concerns still preclude its widespread use in this setting. It is also used in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome and has been investigated for other diseases where insulin resistance may be an important factor.

When prescribed appropriately, Gluformin-XL causes few adverse effects—the most common is gastrointestinal upset—and, unlike many other anti-diabetic drugs, does not cause hypoglycemia if used alone. Lactic acidosis (a buildup of lactate in the blood) can be a serious concern in overdose and when it is prescribed to people with contraindications, but otherwise, there is no significant risk. Gluformin-XL helps reduce LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels and is not associated with weight gain, and is the only anti-diabetic drug that has been conclusively shown to prevent the cardiovascular complications of diabetes. As of 2009, Gluformin-XL is one of only two oral anti-diabetics in the World Health Organization Model List of Essential Medicines (the other being glibenclamide).

Gluformin-XL helps treat diabetes by reducing the amount of sugar you absorb from the food you eat. It also reduces the amount of sugar made by your liver. Gluformin-XL increases your body's response to insulin and this helps to keep your blood sugar in control. Gluformin-XL is meant to be taken as part of a complete diabetes care programme that should include exercise, a healthy diet and regular monitoring of blood sugar levels.
