Expert advice for GLYCINORM TOTAL

  • 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).
  • Symptoms of low blood sugar (alarming signs) are fast heartbeat, sweating, cool and pale skin, feeling shaky, confusion or irritability, headache, nausea, and nightmares. Make sure that you have access to quick-acting sugar sources that treat low blood sugar. Consuming some form of quick-acting sugars immediately after the appearance of the symptoms will prevent the low blood sugar levels from worsening.
  • Consuming alcohol may increase the chance of severe low blood sugar.
  • Gliclazide does not help patients who have type 1 diabetes.
