Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can I stop taking this medication if glucose levels are reduced?

A: While diabetes is a chronic disease and cannot be reversed, it is possible to go off medications by controlling blood glucose levels with the help of diet and exercise. However, you should not take this decision by yourself and always ask your doctor about the possibility of managing diabetes only through diet and exercise.

Q: What extra care can I take while on this medication?

A: While taking Gibtulio tablet, you need to monitor your feet for signs of neuropathy that may result. It is important to regularly check kidney function as well to avoid toxicity. If proteins are detected in the urine, it may be a sign of malfunctioning of the kidneys and the medication may not be excreted out of the body properly.

Q: Is this tablet/medication habit-forming?

A: No, this medicine is not habit-forming. It is ,however, a prescription medicine so it must be used only if prescribed by a doctor. Do not decide to take it by yourself.

Q: What can be done if blood glucose levels drop too low?

A: This may happen if you are taking other diabetes medications. If this happens, you should immediately ingest a glucose-rich drink or food item to restore your glucose levels. However, you should notify your doctor if this occurs so that the cause may be established and further incidents can be avoided.
