hello dear

Galvus Met is a good medicine for Diabetes which can be prescribed to your husband. Only thing we need to worry about is his kidney functions. Metformin component of galvus met should not be taken if patient's creatinine is more than 1.5 mg/dl. So kindly get his kidney functions check and then discuss with your doctor

But some how body can't use it result in diabetes. take medicine as prescribe , do exercise, avoid potato, rice or starch rich diet. Take care of your legs.
