Metformin is the first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, particularly in people who are overweight. It is also used in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome. It is not associated with weight gain and is taken by mouth.
GLYCOMET 1GM is prescribed for the condition of type 2 diabetes when diet and exercise alone cannot control their blood sugar levels. It is the first-line therapy for patients with type 2 diabetes. GLYCOMET 1GM restores the body’s response to insulin, decreases the amount of blood sugar produced by the liver and delays the absorption of sugar by the stomach or intestines. Besides, GLYCOMET 1GM has off-label usage in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) where it helps normalize the menstruation cycle by restoring the body’s hormonal balance, lowers blood sugar levels and stimulates ovulation.
Usually, GLYCOMET 1GM does not cause very significant side effects. Common side effects include diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting or a metallic taste in the mouth. In very rare cases, it may cause a condition known as lactic acidosis (too much lactic acid in the body) with symptoms like dizziness, drowsiness, muscle pain etc. Your sugar level may go down while taking this medicine with heavy exercise, drinking excessive alcohol, or skipping meals. Talk to the doctor about any of the health conditions listed above that may require urgent medical treatment.
