Medical Description

Glycomet GP 1 Forte tablet is an anti-diabetic medicine. It is used for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. This medicine contains a combination of glimepiride and metformin as active ingredi

nts. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a condition in which your pancreas does not make enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels under control and your body is also unable to use its own insulin adequately. 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. Glycomet GP 1 Forte works by increasing insulin secretion from the pancreas and making your body cells utilize insulin optimally. It also decreases the production of glucose and reduces its absorption in the body. As a result, the level of blood sugar is reduced which helps to control type 2 diabetes. Take this medicine in the exact dose and duration as recommended by your doctor. Along with taking Glycomet GP 1 Forte, it is important that you do certain lifestyle modifications like exercising regularly, avoiding smoking and drinking alcohol, and having a balanced diet with adequate fruits and vegetables for adequate control of your blood sugar levels. Before starting Glycomet GP 1 Forte tablet, inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or breastfeeding and about your detailed medical history. Also, inform the doctor about all other medicines and supplements you take.
