BENCLAMET FORTE TABLET belongs to the group of medications called ‘antidiabetic agents’ used in treating Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) condition that affects the way our body processes glucose. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce enough insulin, or the insulin produced cannot perform its function in the body (insulin resistance).
BENCLAMET FORTE TABLET contains Metformin and Glibenclamide. Metformin works by reducing the sugar production by cells in the liver and delays sugar absorption from the intestines. Glibenclamide works by stimulating beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. Thus, insulin helps to remove sugar from the blood.
