GLUMETZA - Once a Day Oral Diabetes Medication Back on the Market
Glumetza is a once a day oral medication for type 2 diabetics. The medication is an extended release medication that releases the medication into the body through out a 24-hour period. Glumetza comes in both 500mg and 1000mg.
Less Risk of Hypoglycemia
One of the biggest attractions for type 2 diabetics is that when they are taking Glumetza there is almost no chance of a hypoglycemic episode occurring as long as the diabetic follows there caloric intake as the medication is released into the body on an almost continuous basis through out the 24 hours period. Hypoglycemia can be a frightening and life-threatening situation.
