Glycomet is a medicine for the treatment of pancreatic diabetes type 2. It shows a high efficiency in patients who have taken sulfonyl urea drugs and the glucose level is not decreased. The medicine contains an active ingredient Metformin. This ingredient belongs to a group of biguanides and lowers the level of glucose in the blood by means of the reduction of insulin-resistance.
The mechanism of the action is conditioned by the slowing of the absorption of glucose in the gastro-intestinal tract and the increase of the glucose sensitivity to insulin. Due to the use of the drug, anaerobic glycolysis is increased in the peripheral tissues.
Glycomet may be used separately, or with insulin. But most patients have a decrease of the blood pressure without the use of exogenic insulin. Metformin has a broad action. It lowers the glucose level and lipids in the blood. Using the drug lowers the cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood plasma.

Glycomet should be used during or after meals, in the dose of 500-1000 mg per day. Heavy people may need a higher dose 1500-2000 mg.
A dosing is adjusted during the treatment depending on the glucose level in the blood. If the maximal daily dose of Glycomet 3000 mg does not lower the sugar level in the blood, some dose of insulin may be added.
