Brief Answer:
medicine is appropriate

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question..

After going through your question , I can understand your concern.

Type 2 Diabetes is due to insulin resistance.

Tab Gemer 1 contains Metformin 500mg and Glimeperide 1mg.
Tab Glycomet contain Metformin 500mg.

Metformin decreases insulin resistance. Glimeperide increases insulin secretion. Whatever the medicine given to you are appropriate.

Along with it, you should control diet and follow regular exercise.

Hope I have answered your question,
I will be happy to answer your further questions, if any.

Regards,

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you

Hi, my dad feels a pain in his stomach where his doctor told him he may have an annurism. He also has a heart murmur. He just tested his blood glucose and it is high, even though he has not eaten in about 4 hours. Is he in any immediate danger of the annurism because of his heart murmur and high glucose level?
