INTRODUCTION:

n

BIGOMET 500MG contains Metformin hydrochloride which belongs to a group of medicines known as biguanides. Diabetes is a condition where the pancreas does not make enough insulin, a hormone which makes your body takes in glucose (sugar) from the blood. This leads to a high level of glucose in your blood.

nThis medicine helps to lower your blood glucose to normal level. It is an antihyperglycemic agent used in patients with type 2 diabetes which improves glucose tolerance. BIGOMET 500MG works by reducing the amount of sugar releases by liver into your blood. Insulin acts by decreasing glucose production from the liver and decreases absorption of glucose from the intestine after taking food while improving the sensitivity of the body organs and muscles towards insulin, thus helping in controlling the blood sugar level.
n
nYour doctor decides upon the dose you take depending on your age, other medications you are taking and whether you have any kidney or liver problems. This medicine is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers. The common side effects are nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. This medicine is suitable for children and adolescents over 10 years of age as recommended by your physician.
