WHAT IS METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE?
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). Metformin is in a class of drugs called biguanides. Metformin 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. Metformin 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.
USE OF METFORMIN HYDROCHLORIDE
To control high blood sugar, metformin is combined with a healthy diet and exercise routine, as well as maybe other drugs. It is prescribed to those who have type 2 diabetes. High blood sugar control can help prevent kidney disease, blindness, nerve problems, limb loss, and sexual function issues. Diabetic control can also reduce your chances of having a heart attack or stroke. Metformin works by assisting in the restoration of your body’s appropriate response to the insulin you produce naturally. It also reduces the quantity of sugar produced by your liver and absorbed by your stomach and intestines.
