Glycomet Gp2 Forte Tablets 10'S Description

Glycomet-GP 2 Forte tablet is an anti-diabetic medicine. It contains glimepiride and metformin as its active ingredient. This table is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus along with a

healthy diet and regular exercise. Type 2 diabetes is a health condition in which your cells don’t respond normally to insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates how your body utilises sugar. This leads to increased blood sugar which can further lead to serious health conditions. Glycomet-GP 2 Forte works by increasing insulin production and restoring the natural response of the body to insulin. Glycomet GP 2 Forte tablet should be taken as directed by your doctor.
