Using Sukkarto SR in women to treat type 2 diabetes

When a combination of diet and exercise has not worked enough to control your blood glucose for a period of 3-6 months, Sukkarto SR is used. Insulin is a hormone that enables body tissues to take glucose from the blood and use it for energy or for storage for future use. People with Type 2 diabetes do not make enough insulin in their pancreas or their body does not respond properly to the insulin it does make. This causes a buildup of glucose in the blood which can cause a number of serious long-term problems so it is important that you continue to take your medicine, even though you may not have any obvious symptoms. Sukkarto SR makes the body more sensitive to insulin and helps return to normal the way your body uses glucose.

Who cannot take Sukkarto SR?

You must not take Sukkarto SR to treat type 2 diabetes if you:

  • Are allergic to metformin or any of the other ingredients in the medicine
  • Have an allergic reaction may cause a rash, itching or shortness of breath
  • Have severely reduced kidney function
  • Have uncontrolled diabetes, with, for example, severe hyperglycaemia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, rapid weight loss, lactic acidosis or ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a condition in which substances called 'ketone bodies' accumulate in the blood and which can lead to diabetic pre-coma. Symptoms include stomach pain, fast and deep breathing, sleepiness or your breath developing an unusual fruity smell.
  • Have lost too much water from your body. Dehydration may lead to kidney problems, which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis
  • Have liver problems
  • Have a severe infection, such as an infection affecting your lung or bronchial system or your kidney. Severe infections may lead to kidney problems, which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis
  • Have been treated for acute heart problems or have recently had a heart attack or have severe circulatory problems or breathing difficulties. This may lead to a lack in oxygen supply to tissue which can put you at risk for lactic acidosis
  • Are a heavy drinker of alcohol
  • Are under the age of 18 years
