Medical Description

Diapride M2 Forte Tablet contains a combination of Glimepiride and Metformin, an anti-diabetic medicine. This combination is known to control blood sugar to a greater extent than metformin or glimepir
ide alone. Glimepiride lowers the blood sugar level increasing the release of insulin hormone from the pancreas. Metformin decreases the absorption in the intestine and the production of sugar by the liver to increase the insulin sensitivity of the body (which allows the cells of the body to use blood glucose more effectively, reducing blood sugar). It is advised to follow a proper diet and exercise regularly along with this tablet for better control of blood sugar levels.
