WHAT IS GLUCOPHAGE?

Glucophage is a biguanide that contains metformin hydrochloride. It is a prescription medication used in addition to diet and exercise to improve glucose control in adults with type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Controlling hyperglycemia prevents downstream complications such as kidney damage, loss of limbs, blindness, heart attack, stroke, or nerve problems. It is important that diabetes remains controlled to lessen the chance of related complications. Glucophage is not recommended for the treatment of type I diabetes or for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis.
