Glucomet 500 MG Description

Glucomet 500 tablet is an anti-diabetic medication. It is used to improve the control of blood sugar levels in individuals with Type 2 diabetes when diet and exercise alone have not been enough to co

ntrol blood sugar levels. It is used particularly in overweight patients. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a condition where your pancreas does not make enough insulin to control your blood sugar levels and your body is 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. Glucomet 500 tablet contains metformin as the active substance. This medicine should not be used in children less than 10 years of age. Take this medicine exactly as recommended by your doctor. Do not stop taking this medicine on your own even if you start feeling better.
