About Volix 0.2mg Tablet 15's

Volix 0.2mg Tablet 15's belongs to the group of anti-diabetic medicines called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors used to treat type-2 diabetes mellitus. Volix 0.2mg Tablet 15's is prescribed for the condition of type 2 diabetes when diet and exercise alone cannot control their blood sugar levels.

Type-2 diabetes mellitus is also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Diabetes is a medical condition in which blood glucose levels are above normal. Insulin is the hormone which controls sugar levels in your blood. People with type 2 diabetes either do not produce enough insulin, or the insulin produced cannot perform its function in the body (insulin resistance). Middle-aged or older individuals are most likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, which is also known as adult-onset diabetes.
 
Volix 0.2mg Tablet 15's works by inhibiting the intestinal enzymes responsible for breaking complex sugars into simple sugars like glucose. Thereby, it helps in preventing blood glucose levels from rising immediately after meals.
