What is Metformin?

It is a medicine for diabetes used with a proper diet and exercise program and possibly with other medications to control high blood sugar. It is used in patients with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. It is currently the most popular drug prescribed for those with Type 2 diabetes. Metformin is used to treat people with type 2 diabetes. It is sometimes used in combination with insulin or other medications.

Metformin for Diabetes

Metformin is used to treat high blood sugar levels that are caused by a type of diabetes mellitus or sugar diabetes called type 2 diabetes. With this type of diabetes, insulin produced by the pancreas is not able to get sugar into the cells of the body where it can work properly. Using metformin alone, with a type of oral antidiabetic medicine called a sulfonylurea, or with insulin, will help to lower blood sugar when it is too high and help restore the way you use food to make energy.

Many people can control type 2 diabetes with diet and exercise. Following a specially planned diet and exercise will always be important when you have diabetes, even when you are taking medicines. To work properly, the amount of metformin you take must be balanced against the amount and type of food you eat and the amount of exercise you do. If you change your diet or exercise, you will want to test your blood sugar to find out if it is too low. Your doctor will teach you what to do if this happens.

How does it work?

It contains metformin hydrochloride as an active ingredient. It is a biguanide medication and works in treating type 2 diabetes which helps in controlling the body’s blood sugar levels. It decreases the amount of sugar absorbed from food by the intestines during and after a meal.

It also controls glucose levels produced by the liver. It enables cells to remove blood sugar in an efficient manner. It also helps the body to respond efficiently to insulin produced. It increases muscle cell sensitivity to insulin. It is effective for type 2 diabetes, not suitable or prescribed for type 1 diabetes treatment.

How to Take This Diabetes Medicine

The medication can be taken 2 or 3 times a day depending on the patient and as advised by the doctor as to dosage and frequency.

  • The medication is taken exactly as prescribed by the doctor and according to instructions on the prescription label.
  • Take with food during or after a meal. It must be swallowed whole.
  • Visit your doctor regularly to have blood sugar tested.
  • Must not be used to substitute for diet or exercise regime.

Metformin is used alone or with other medications, including insulin, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). It is in a class of drugs called biguanides. It helps to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in your blood. It decreases the amount of glucose you absorb from your food and the amount of glucose made by your liver. It also increases your body's response to insulin, a natural substance that controls the amount of glucose in the blood. Metformin is not used to treat type 1 diabetes (condition in which the body does not produce insulin and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood).

Over time, people who have diabetes and high blood sugar can develop serious or life-threatening complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney problems, nerve damage, and eye problems. Taking medication(s), making lifestyle changes (e.g., diet, exercise, quitting smoking), and regularly checking your blood sugar may help to manage your diabetes and improve your health. This therapy may also decrease your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or other diabetes-related complications such as kidney failure, nerve damage (numb, cold legs or feet; decreased sexual ability in men and women), eye problems, including changes or loss of vision, or gum disease. Your doctor and other healthcare providers will talk to you about the best way to manage your diabetes.
