Medical Description

The Gluconorm G 1 Forte tablet is an oral anti-diabetic medication containing glimepiride and metformin as active ingredients. It's used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus, where blood sugar levels rise above the normal range and can't be controlled by diet and exercise alone. This medication works by lowering blood glucose levels, but it should be combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan.

To gain optimal therapeutic benefits, take Gluconorm G 1 Forte as directed by your doctor, at the same time every day, with meals and with the first meal of the day. Glycomet GP 1 forte tablets, Gemer DS 1mg tablets and Amaryl M 1 forte tablets are a few other examples of medicines with a combination of glimepiride and metformin.

Before using this medication, inform your doctor if you're pregnant, planning to get pregnant or breastfeeding, and provide your detailed medical history. If left uncontrolled, diabetes can lead to various health complications such as eye, kidney, nerve, heart diseases and stroke.

  • Glimepiride lowers the blood sugar level and increases the release of insulin from the pancreas.

  • Metformin decreases the absorption in the intestine and the production of sugar in the liver.
  • Both of these components increases the insulin sensitivity of the body (which allows the cells of the body to use blood glucose more effectively, reducing blood sugar).
