Uses
Metformin (Metformin Hydrochloride) is used to treat type 2 diabetes. This condition is caused by a deficiency of insulin (a natural hormone which can help to control sugar levels in the blood). Insufficient insulin production by the pancreas can cause the blood sugar levels to be too high. This can cause serious health problems. This drug is known as a biguanide, and it works by reducing the amount of sugar absorbed from food. It can also increase the response of the body to insulin and lessen sugar production in the liver. Doctors will often prescribe this drug to patients as part of a comprehensive treatment plan which also includes a special diet and exercise plan.
