    Expert advice FOR GLICONIL

    • Type 2 diabetes can be controlled with a proper diet alone or a diet along with exercise. A planned diet and exercising are always important when you have diabetes, even when you are taking antidiabetic medicines.
    • Low blood sugar is life-threatening. Low blood sugar may develop due to:
      • Delay or missing scheduled meals or snacks. 
      • Exercising more than usual. 
      • Drinking a significant amount of alcohol.
      • Using too much insulin. 
      • Sickness (vomiting or diarrhea).

    • Glibenclamide does not help patients who have type 1 diabetes.
