About GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET

GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET belongs to the class of drug called ''oral hypoglycemic'' used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus when diet and exercise alone cannot control their blood sugar levels.  Type 2 diabetes is a chronic or lifelong disorder that affects the way our body processes glucose. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce enough insulin or the insulin produced is unable to perform its function in the body (insulin resistance). Middle-aged or older individuals are most likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, so it is also known as adult-onset diabetes.

GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET helps to control the blood sugar level. It works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas. It stimulates the secretion of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing blood sugar levels. GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET prevents the blood glucose level from rising to very high levels, thus keeping your blood sugar level under control.

GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET should be taken with food to avoid an upset stomach. GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET should be taken at the same time of the day each time for the best results. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet. Your doctor will decide the dosage form, and this may change timely depending on your blood sugar levels. Do not stop taking GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET on your own, since it may cause a rise in your blood sugar levels leading to other health issues like blindness, kidney damage, and loss of limbs. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects, such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and constipation. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, please consult your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.

Before starting GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, or breast-feeding. And also tell the doctor if you have/had any medical history of heart, liver, and kidney diseases, glucose-6- phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency (abnormality of red blood cells), haemolytic anaemia. Avoid alcohol consumption while taking GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET; it might increase the side effects (hypoglycemia). Inform your doctor about all the medicine you are taking and your health condition to rule out any unpleasant side effects.

GLYCIGON 80MG TABLET works best when coupled with a healthy lifestyle like losing weight if you are overweight (BMI >25), eating fewer calories (low fat and sugary food), and being more physically active (at least 150 min of activity every week).
