Hi,
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.
