Benefits of Glimestar-PM Tablet ER

In Treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Glimestar-PM2 Tablet ER is a medicine that helps to control high blood glucose (sugar) levels. It helps get rid of extra glucose from your body through urine. It also improves the body’s response to the hormone insulin, which is responsible for regulating blood glucose (sugar) levels in our body.

How Glimestar-PM Tablet ER works

Glimestar-PM2 Tablet ER is a combination of three antidiabetic medicines: Glimepiride, Metformin and Pioglitazone. They work by different mechanisms to provide better control of blood sugar when single or dual therapy is not effective. Glimepiride is a sulfonylurea which works by increasing the amount of insulin released by the pancreas in order to lower the blood glucose. Metformin is a biguanide. It works by lowering glucose production in the liver, delaying glucose absorption from intestines and increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin. Pioglitazone is a thiazolidinedione which further increases insulin sensitivity.
