About Gluconorm-VG 2 Tablet 15's

Gluconorm-VG 2 Tablet 15's is a combination of three anti-diabetic drugs: Glimepiride, Metformin and Voglibose. 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 intestines and by increasing the body's response to insulin. Voglibose, which is an 'alpha-glucosidase inhibitor' prevents the breakdown of complex sugars into simple sugars such as glucose in the intestine. In a nutshell, the three medicines together prevents 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 three medicines in Gluconorm-VG 2 Tablet 15's act together to keep your blood sugar levels under check. A strict control of blood sugars is especially important to mention the many disabling side effects of Diabetes. Gluconorm-VG 2 Tablet 15's shows optimum effects when taken along with healthy lifestyle changes like weight loss, regular exercise, healthy diet etc.
