Product Details


Glumetza is a prescription Type 2 diabetes treatment medication. It is used to improve glycemic control and keep blood sugar levels from spiking or staying elevated when excess sugar remains in the blood when a person is insulin resistant. The active ingredient in Glumetza is Metformin, and it is a biguanide insulin response enhancer drug that works by restoring the body's proper response to naturally produced insulin. It also prompts the liver to produce less sugar so that cells of the stomach and intestines absorb more of the quantity that is produced. Best results for blood sugar control with Glumetza are achieved when pairing the medication with diet and exercise changes.


Standard dosage is to take Glumetza 100mg once daily, with food. Most users take this medication with their evening meal.

Dosage may vary based on doctor’s assessments, and you should always take your medication exactly as indicated in your prescription.


The active ingredient in Glumetza is Metformin.
