Ondero Met tablet is an anti-diabetic medicine. It is used for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Ondero Met tablet is a combination medicine containing linagliptin and metformin as its active components. 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 that can further lead to serious health conditions. This medicine works by increasing insulin production and restoring the natural response of the body to insulin. This not only controls your blood sugar levels but also reduces the risk of other health conditions associated with increased blood sugar. Ondero Met tablet should be taken in correct doses and for the exact duration as prescribed by your doctor. Avoid missing a dose or consuming it more than the prescribed dose. While taking this medicine, it is essential to make certain lifestyle modifications such as consuming a healthy and balanced diet, staying active, quitting smoking and regularly checking your blood sugar. This may help to manage your diabetes and improve your health....
