Glucophage and its Uses

Generic Glucophage belongs to the class of medications called oral hypoglycemics (medications that lower blood sugar). Generic Glucophage is a medicine used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. Glucophage is used when diet, exercise, and weight reduction have not been found to lower blood glucose well enough on their own.

Treatment is combined with a balanced diet and exercise. Generic Glucophage lowers blood sugar and helps your body to use insulin more efficiently. It is sometimes used with other medicines for diabetes.

Generic Glucophage works by reducing the amount of glucose made by the liver and by making it easier for glucose to enter into the tissues of the body. Generic Glucophage has been found to be especially useful in delaying problems associated with diabetes for overweight people with diabetes.

Glucophage Mechanism Glucophage Working

People with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes) have a deficiency of a hormone called insulin. Insulin is produced by the pancreas and is the main hormone responsible for controlling sugar levels in the blood. It normally makes the cells of the body remove excess sugar from the blood. In type 2 diabetes the cells of the body are also resistant to the action of insulin that is produced, which means that blood sugar levels can become too high.

Generic Glucophage is a type of antidiabetic medicine known as a biguanide. Glucophage works in a number of ways to decrease the amount of sugar in the blood of people with type 2 diabetes.

Firstly, Generic Glucophage reduces the amount of sugar produced by cells in the liver. Secondly, Glucophage increases the sensitivity of muscle cells to insulin. This enables the cells to remove sugar from the blood more effectively. Finally, Generic Glucophage also delays absorption of sugar from the intestines into the bloodstream after eating. Overall, Glucophage reduces blood sugar levels both between and directly after meals.

Food and Drug interactions with Glucophage

The following medicines can raise blood sugar levels and may therefore oppose the effect of Glucophage:

  • corticosteroids, such as prednisolone
  • diuretics, such as bendrofluazide
  • beta-2-agonists, such as salbutamol
  • Cimetidine may cause an increase in the blood level of Glucophage. Your doctor may reduce your Glucophage dose if you take both medicines.
  • When Glucophage is taken with other antidiabetic medicines, such as sulphonylureas (e.g. gliclazide, glibenclamide) or insulin, there will be an enhanced blood sugar lowering effect. Blood sugar should be monitored.
  • Low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia) may occur, sometimes unpredictably, if Glucophage is taken with ACE inhibitors such as captopril.
  • Alcohol should be avoided while you are taking this medicine, as it can increase the risk of hypoglycaemia and lactic acidosis.
  • Glucophage should be discontinued prior to X-ray examinations with iodinated materials, as a temporary decrease in kidney function may occur. It should not be reinstated until kidney function has been tested and found to be normal.
