Composition

Composition

The active ingredients of Gemer P 2MG tablet are Glimepiride (2MG), Pioglitazone (15MG) and Metformin (500Mg)

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Mechanism of Action of Drugs

Glimepiride works by increasing the release of insulin from the pancreas and decreasing the hormones (glucagon) that raise blood glucose levels thereby reducing the fasting and post-meal sugar levels. Pioglitazone is a thiazolidinedione, that acts on a specific site that positively affects the production of substances that promote the breakdown of fats and glucose in the body and also decreases insulin resistance without causing any strain on pancreas. Metformin reduces hepatic glucose production, decreases intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity by increasing peripheral glucose uptake and utilization. The combination is thus better effective in lowering blood glucose levels.
