FAQs

Q. What does Met DM 500mg Tablet XL do exactly?

People with type 2 diabetes are not able to make enough insulin or respond normally to the insulin made by their bodies. When this happens, the concentration of sugar/glucose increases in the blood. Met DM 500mg Tablet XL acts in several ways to reduce the increased levels of sugar in blood. Met DM 500mg Tablet XL decreases 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. This helps improve the uptake of glucose from the blood. It also helps your body to respond better to the insulin it makes naturally.

Q. Does Met DM 500mg Tablet XL cause weight loss?

Yes, Met DM 500mg Tablet XL has been shown to cause weight loss in people who are overweight or obese. It may also cause a modest loss in weight in those overweight and obese individuals who are at risk for diabetes. In addition, patients who are sensitive or resistant to insulin may also show weight loss. But, do not start taking this medicine for weight loss on your own. Consult your doctor for the same.

Q. What are the benefits of taking Met DM 500mg Tablet XL?

Met DM 500mg Tablet XL is one of the first medicines that is given to patients with high blood sugar levels. It helps control blood sugar levels. It promotes the body’s response to the insulin made by the pancreas, decreases the amount of sugar made by the liver and decreases the amount of sugar absorbed by the intestines. Unlike other oral antidiabetic medicines, Met DM 500mg Tablet XL when taken alone, rarely causes low blood sugar as it prevents the pancreas from secreting more insulin.

Met DM 500mg Tablet XL usually does not cause sleepiness and is well tolerated. However, the use of Met DM 500mg Tablet XL may rarely cause sleep disorders and insomnia.
