What is Metformin?
Metformin has taken a leading position in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It belongs to the biguanide. These are substances that reduce blood glucose levels. The effectiveness of the tool has been proven by time and practice, as evidenced by patient reviews. This is the only medication that is used to treat diabetes in children. Metformin has several names, it is sold as Glucophage, Siofor, and Glyformin. This depends on the manufacturer and the composition of the drug.
As a rule, the drug is prescribed at the first symptoms of diabetes and this justifies the appointment, because the treatment is prescribed on time, and this is a 50% success rate. To begin with, I will tell you in what form Metformin hydrochloride is produced. Today, two forms of medication differ in duration of action: the extended form and the regular form.
Both forms are available in tablets but differ in dosage.
Regular Metformin is available in doses of 1000, 850 and 500 mg Prolonged Metformin is available in doses of 750 and 500 mg
In combination with medications, Metformin can be at a dose of 400 mg. For example, in glibomet.
There are cases when the drug is not suitable or there are contraindications for its use. How to act and what can I replace Metformin with? If this is a severe intolerance to tablets, you can try to change to a drug from another company, but also to contain Metformin, i.e. in other words, replace it with some analog.
But when there is any contraindication, then replacing it with an analog will not solve the problem, because it will have the same contraindications. In this case, Metformin can be replaced with the following drugs, which will have a similar mechanism of action:
- DPP-4 inhibitor (Januvia, Galvus, ongliza)
- analogs of GPP-1 (baeta and Victoza)
- thiazolidinediones (Avandia and Actos)
But you need to change medications only under the supervision of your doctor.
Why doesn't Metformin help?
Sometimes patients complain that the prescribed medication does not help, i.e. it does not cope with its main task — normalization of fasting glucose. This can happen for several reasons. Below is a list of reasons why Metformin may not help.
Sometimes it is enough to correct any errors in the reception and the sugar-lowering effect will not take long.
If you take the medicine before a meal, the effectiveness of Metformin decreases dramatically. It should be remembered that this type of hypoglycemic agent is designed to normalize the level of glucose on an empty stomach, and not after a meal. You also need to remember that without limiting carbohydrate food, the effectiveness of the drug is much lower. So you need to eat when taking Metformin according to the General principles of nutrition for diabetes and obesity.
Taking Metformin can be combined with other sugar-lowering drugs and insulin to achieve the maximum effect of the latter. To evaluate the effect of this drug, you do not need to hurry and immediately wait for a decrease in glucose levels. You need to wait for 1-2 weeks until the drug unfolds its maximum effect.
After this, it is recommended to assess the level of blood sugar on an empty stomach (in the morning before Breakfast) using a glucose meter (for example, the TS Contour), as well as just before eating and before going to bed. But you need to make sure that the break between meals was no more than 4-5 hours. If the target value of blood sugar is not reached during these periods, you can increase the dose, but not more than the maximum allowed.
Treatment of prediabetes with Metformin
The use of this drug is practiced in prediabetes and to get rid of excess weight, accompanied by insensitivity to insulin, as well as to slow down the aging process, with metabolic disorders in the body, and even in gynecology and sports.
Recently, we started discussing the possibility of taking Metformin for people over the age of ten to treat their obesity and MODY type diabetes. But for now, this is just a discussion. A common question is whether it is possible to take Metformin if there is no diabetes. Doctors do not recommend self-administration of this drug without a prescription. There are also cases of taking a drug for obesity.
Metformin Is Contraindicated:
- Women in the lactation period and pregnant women;
- With a low-calorie diet;
- Those who have suffered severe injuries and operations;
- Who has liver damage;
- Those who have ever had lactic acidosis;
- For kidney failure;
- Children under 10 years old;
- The tendency to development of lactic acidosis.
Treatment of diabetes mellitus with Metformin will be effective if the drug is taken in the right dosage and follow other doctor's recommendations regarding the therapeutic plan, including compliance with a special diet.
Medical analogs of this drug with similar actions are:
- Siofor (Langerin);
This drug can also be replaced with Glyformin for diabetes. Metformin, as well as its other analogs, allows you to improve the reaction of cells, faster assimilation of insulin. To avoid complications, it is recommended to carefully follow the treatment regimen developed by the attending physician, with the established dosages, the period of use.
For Metformin in the presence of diabetes, reviews are more often positive.
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Glibenclamide Was Prescribed. However, after a while, the attending doctor switched me to Metformin. I noticed that there were fewer problems, and the drug is much cheaper than other analogs. The sugar level is almost stable, it is kept normal, and my health has improved significantly.
