How effective are Metformin hydrochloride tablets 250 mg from Japan for type 2 diabetes (Glucophage)?

Metformin is a biguanide hypoglycemic agent. This medicine provides multiple effects on human body:

  • Metformin hydrochloride tablets promote the degradation of glucose and glycogen,
  • The sugar is intensively utilized in muscles,
  • The production and release of sugar in the liver is suppressed,
  • A positive effect is provided on gut microbiota,
  • In most patients, an anorexiant effect is exerted, decreasing caloric intake.

As the result, Metformin hydrochloride tablets effectively reduce the sugar level in the blood.

Who should use Metformin hydrochloride tablets 250 mg from Japan?

Japanese Metformin hydrochloride tablets are used for the patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is generally well tolerated and not associated with the weight gain. Studies showed that while it can be used together with other drugs, metformin alone is recommended as a first-line treatment for diabetes due to its significantly lower risk for hypoglycemia, congestive heart failure and bone fractures (W. L. Bennett, N. M. Maruthur et al. “Comparative Effectiveness and Safety of Medications for Type 2 Diabetes: An Update Including New Drugs and 2-Drug Combinations”. Annals of Internal Medicine, 2011, 154(9): 602–613).
