What is Galvus Met?
Galvus Met is a combination medicine used for the treatment of diabetes. This medicine is prescribed by the doctor when a single medicine and recommended dietary changes are ineffective in treating the high blood sugar levels.
How Galvus Met Works
Galvus Met is prescribed to control the overall blood glucose levels by the combined action of Metformin Hydrochloride and Vildagliptin. Metformin Hydrochloride is an anti-hyperglycemic medicine belonging to the class biguanides. Metformin Hydrochloride works by reducing the secretion of glucose by the liver and the absorption of glucose from intestines. Vildagliptin belongs to class of antidiabetic medicines called DPP- 4 inhibitors(Dipeptidyl peptidase- 4 enzyme inhibitors).Vildagliptin increases the production of insulin from the pancreatic beta cells by inhibiting the DPP-4 enzyme and the release of glucagon after a meal.
