Mode of Action of Glimisave 1mg Tab

How Does It Work?

The pancreas secretes insulin, which is a hormone responsible for the movement of sugar (glucose) from the blood into the cells as fuel. In type 2 diabetes, our organs do not produce sufficient insulin or even utilize the insulin produced. Hence, the sugar cannot enter the cells and remains in your bloodstream. Glimisave 1mg Tab helps increase the amount of insulin released from your pancreas, which then lowers your blood sugar levels.
