About BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET

BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET is a combination of two anti-diabetic drugs: Glimepiride and Metformin. Glimepiride, which is a 'sulfonylurea', acts by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas. Metformin, which is a 'biguanide', acts by lowering the glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from the intestines and increasing the body's response to insulin. In a nutshell, the two medicines together prevent the blood glucose levels from rising to very high levels thus keeping your Diabetes under control.

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic or lifelong condition that affects the way your body processes glucose. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce enough insulin or if at all the insulin is produced, it is unable to perform its function in the body (insulin resistance). Due to this, the blood glucose level increases and symptoms such as frequent urination, increased thirst and increased hunger start. It can lead to serious complications like skin infection, eye problems (retinopathy), nerve damage (neuropathy), diabetic foot (foot ulcer), kidney disease (nephropathy), high blood pressure, and even stroke.

By the above-mentioned mechanisms, the two medicines in BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET act together to keep your blood sugar levels under check. The strict control of blood sugars is especially important to mention the many disabling side effects of Diabetes. BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET shows optimum effects when taken along with healthy lifestyle changes like weight loss, regular exercise, healthy diet etc. 

BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET should be taken with food to avoid an upset stomach. BETAGLIM M 1MG TABLET should be taken at the same time of the day each time for the best results. For better advise, your doctor will decide what dose should be taken and it can change timely depending upon your condition.
