Glisen Vm 2mg Strip Of 10 Tablets Description

Glisen VM 2 tablet is an oral antidiabetic medicine. It is used to manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a condition in which your pancreas does not make enough insulin to cont

rol blood sugar levels and your body is also unable to efficiently use its own insulin. This causes high blood sugar levels in your body, which can cause medical problems like heart disease, kidney disease, blindness, and poor blood flow in your hands and legs. Glisen VM 2 tablet contains a combination of metformin, glimepiride, and voglibose as active ingredients. You should take this medicine in the exact dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more than the recommended dose. Do not miss any dose or abruptly stop taking Glisen VM 2 tablet without informing your doctor. Before starting this medicine, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding. Also, inform the doctor about your detailed medical history including all the medicines you are currently taking.

modeOfAction

Mode of Action of Glisen Vm 2mg Strip Of 10 Tablets

How Does It Work?

  • Glisen VM 2 tablet contains a combination of metformin, glimepiride, and voglibose as active ingredients.
  • Insulin moves sugar (glucose) from the blood into the cells. Glimepiride lowers the blood sugar level by increasing the release of insulin hormone from the pancreas.
  • Metformin decreases the production of glucose and also reduces its absorption in the body.
  • Voglibose reduces the rate of digestion of complex carbohydrates. Less glucose is absorbed because the carbohydrates are not broken down into glucose molecules.
