Thanks for the query.

Both your fasting and postprandial blood sugar levels are high.
Obimet SR 500 is an oral anti-diabetic drug containing metformin.
It decreases the blood glucose levels by suppressing the glucose production by the liver.
It is particularly useful in over-weight people with normal renal function.
And also it can prevent cardiovascular complications in diabetic people.
After starting the tablets it starts showing immediate effect, but for stabilization of sugar levels at-least one week may needed.
With proper and continuous use of the drug you can maintain the normal levels.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

I currently take provera to have my cycle. I m only 35 years old and if I don t take it I won t have a cycle. My husband and I have a beautiful 5 yr old daughter and are trying to conceive. My family Dr has me on metformin for PCOS and my OB has me taking clomid. What is the difference between taking it days 3-7 and 5-9? My dr always says 5-9? Just curious.

Hi, I m 26yo, have PCOS and for the last year my periods have been roughly a 30 day cycle. Last period was a 16 day cycle now I am 16 days late. My fiancé and I have been trying for 2 years to conceive but haven t had any luck. My current symptoms are diarrhoea, bloating, nausea, mild cramping, tiredness. I am on metformin and have been taking ferro-gradumet. I have done 4 hpt all negative. Could I be pregnant?

Hi. I am 34, exercise 6 times a week, and eat healthy. However, recently diagnosed with polycystic ovaries from a huge weight gain when pregnant (had baby 3 years ago). I also have pain just below my left pelvic bone (it gets worse when I stand up, or lean towards my left side), but no pain on touch, so doctors have said its just stress. But pain is getting worse. I am gluten intolerant, eat a clean G/F meal. But with the pelvic pain, I have also noticed that my poo is dark and pebbly (though soft), with a bit of blood every so often, and lots of visible mucus. Any insight will help- are these symptoms related? Is it just stress? Am I worrying for nothing? I am currently on metformin for the polycystic ovaries. Thanks.

Hi, my husband was diagnosed with ventricular tachychardia. Lastnight he was experiencing dizziness and felt like the whole room was spinning around. He is also diabetic and has high blood pressure. He is currently taking the following meds. Nifedipine 10mg. generic for procardia (2 capsules 3x daily), Aspirin 325 mg.(1 tablet daily), Metroprolol 50mg. generic for Lopressor (1 capsule 2x daily) , Pravastatin 40mg. generic for Pravachol) (1 taken before bedtime), Lisonopril 40mg. generic for zestril ((2 tablets daily - 1 in a.m. and the other in p.m.) , and Metformin 500mg. generic for glucophage (1 tablet 1x daily) . The Nifedipine that his taking really makes him really drowsy, and sleep alot. What can I do? I m also thinking that what happened to him lastnight was partly due to his diabetes and possibly his blood pressure. I fed him turkey burger (plain), no salt only garlic and herb with lettuce on wheat bread. He is now currently sleeping. Would he be okay later?
