What is Diabetes?
Diabetes causes a person’s blood glucose level to become too high. There are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.
Type 2 diabetes is where the body does not produce the sufficient amount of insulin, or when cells do not response to insulin – the latter of which is known as insulin resistance.
Insulin is a hormone, produced by the pancreas, which controls the amount of sugar in the blood. When you digest food, it enters into your bloodstream and then insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into your cells. It is then broken down to produce energy however; if you have type 2 diabetes, your body is unable to break it down. This is because there is either not enough insulin to regulate the level of glucose in the blood, or the insulin produced is ineffective at regulating blood sugar levels.
Diabetes is linked to being overweight and living an inactive lifestyle. A family history of type 2 diabetes could also increase the risk of developing the condition at some point in your life.
It is important to treat diabetes because if the condition is left untreated it can lead to a number of health complications including: cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage and hearing impairment.
Type 2 diabetes is often treated with a combination of medicines and changes to your diet and lifestyle. Your doctor will discuss appropriate treatments with you.
Your condition will need to be reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure that your condition is under control and that your medicine is working effectively.
Eucreas tablets work by controlling the level of sugar in your blood.
The two active ingredients: metformin and vildagliptin, stimulate insulin production and reduce the amount of glucose in the blood.
Together, they help to regulate the amount of glucose in your blood and reduce the risk of hyperglycaemia.
Eucreas tablets are usually taken twice daily, one tablet in the morning and one in the evening. You should swallow one tablet whole with a glass of water with or just after food.
The dose you are prescribed will depend on your current treatment and the expected effect of Eucreas.
