Metformin is used to treat high blood sugar levels that are caused by type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a disease that occurs when the body does not produce or use insulin normally, whichresults in high blood sugar (glucose).
Metformin works by decreasing the amount of sugar you absorb from food and by reducing the amount of glucose your liver makes. It also increases your body’s response to insulin
Using metformin alone, or with a type of oral antidiabetic medicine called a sulfonylurea, or with insulin, will help to lower blood sugar when it is too high and help restore the way you use food to make energy.
Metformin does not help patients who have insulin-dependent or type 1 diabetes because they cannot produce insulin from their pancreatic gland. Their blood glucose is best controlled by insulin injections.
Metformin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
