Gluconorm Vg 1mg Strip Of 15 Tablets Description

Gluconorm VG 1 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 c

ntrol 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. Gluconorm VG 1 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 Gluconorm VG 1 tablet without informing your doctor. Before starting this medicine, inform the doctor if you are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Also, inform the doctor about your detailed medical history including all the medicines you are currently taking. During treatment with Gluconorm VG 1 tablet, patients are advised to maintain a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet to get the best possible effect.

Mode of Action of Gluconorm Vg 1mg Strip Of 15 Tablets

How Does It Work?

  • Gluconorm VG 1 tablet contains a combination of metformin, glimepiride, and voglibose as active ingredients.

  • Metformin decreases the production of glucose and also reduces its absorption in the body.
