Metformin and brand names Glucophage, Meglucon, Glumet are an
anti-diabetic medicine known as a biguanide and are used as a first
line treatment to help control blood sugar levels in those suffering
from type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes (NIDDM). It reduces
the amount of sugar produced by cells in the liver, increases the sensitivity of muscle cells to
insulin enabling them to remove sugar from the blood more effectively. Finally, it delays
absorption of sugar from the intestines into the bloodstream after eating and reduces blood
sugar levels both between and directly after meals. Metformin is also used in combination with
other drugs (Glibenclamide, Rosiglitazone, Pioglitazone and Sitagliptin) for better control
blood sugar, these include Glucovance, Avandamet, Duotorol and Janumet.
