Uses

Glucophage 1000mg (Metformin Hydrochloride) is a drug used to lower blood sugar in patients with insulin-independent type of diabetes.

The drug lowers the concentration of glucose (on an empty stomach and after a meal) in the blood and the level of glycated hemoglobin, increases glucose tolerance.

Glucophage 1000mg (Metformin Hydrochloride) reduces intestinal absorption of glucose, its production in the liver, potentiates insulin sensitivity of peripheral tissues (the absorption of glucose and its metabolism increases). Metformin Hydrochloride does not change insulin secretion by beta cells of pancreatic islets (insulin level, measured on an empty stomach, and the daily insulin response may even decrease).

Also, Metformin Hydrochloride normalizes the lipid profile of blood plasma in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus: reduces the content of triglycerides, cholesterol and LDL (determined on an empty stomach) and does not alter the levels of lipoproteins of other densities.

Metformin Hydrochloride stabilizes or reduces body weight.
