Yes, Gride can be given to elderly patients. However, since they are more prone to the risk of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia), a regular monitoring of blood sugar levels is important. Patients should be cautious of the symptoms of hypoglycemia and always carry a quick source of sugar with them like a candy or a fruit juice.

Q. Can Gride cause pancreatitis?

No, Gride is not reported to cause pancreatitis. Some common side effects associated with the use of Gride include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar level), nausea, headache, and dizziness.

Avoid using Gride if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to sulfonylureas or sulfonamides or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.

Q. Is Gride useful in the management for prediabetes?

Gride is not used for the management of prediabetes. Prediabetes is a condition with blood glucose levels higher than normal but not high enough to label you as diabetic. There are clinical studies available, but the evidence is not strong enough for its use in prediabetes.

Q. Does Gride cause hair loss?

No, the use of Gride does not cause hair loss. However, diabetes itself can lead to hair loss. Talk to your doctor if you have excessive hair loss as it could be due to some other underlying condition. Excessive hair loss can also be a sign of your diabetes getting worsened.

Yes, Gride can cause weight gain. It is advisable to monitor your diet closely and exercise regularly while taking this medicine. Avoid skipping your meal as it can cause very low blood sugar levels and you may end up snacking or taking a lot of sugars.
