The main cause of the diabetes is considered a high resistance to insulin and increased production of glucose by liver. The use of the high doses of insulin can cause hypotension, and often a patient feels sick. A medicine Glucophage does not contain insulin, quickly lowers the sugar level in the blood and almost does not have the side effects.
What is Glucophage?
Glucophage successfully passed all medical tests and was approved by FDA for the treatment of the diabetes type 2. It contains the active ingredient Metformin.
The mechanism of the hypoglycemic action of Glucophage consists in the increase of the resistance to the action of insulin and reduction of the production of glucose by liver. Using the medicine, own insulin is enough which is produced in the human body in order to effectively lower the glucose level in the blood.
Metformin can influence on other metabolic processes as well. It slows downs the uptake of the glucose in the stomach and enhances the utilization of glucose in the intestine. It also slows down the uptake of carbohydrates and prevents the increase of the sugar level in the blood after meals.
Glucophage has another very important therapeutic characteristic: it reduces appetite and favors a reduction of the excessive weight. The use of Glucophage in combination with diet and physical activity will help to regulate the glucose level in the blood, lower the excessive body weight, and lower the probability of the complications in the cardiovascular system.
