Hi, Thanks for asking about side effects of Glycomet tablet taken for Diabetes Mellitus (Type 2).

You can try taking Tab. Glimeperide 1mg - 1-0-1 for 1 month after consulting with your Endocrinologist or your physician.

Diabetes mellitus type 2 (also known as type 2 diabetes) is a long term metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood sugar, insulin resistance, and relative lack of insulin. Common symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, and unexplained weight loss. Symptoms may also include increased hunger, feeling tired, and sores that do not heal. Often symptoms come on slowly. Long-term complications from high blood sugar include heart disease, strokes, diabetic retinopathy which can result in blindness, kidney failure, and poor blood flow in the limbs which may lead to amputations.The sudden onset of hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state may occur; however, ketoacidosis is uncommon.

Consult again after 1 month after checking Random Blood sugar. Monitor blood levels after meals for 1 week after starting new dose. You must buy a glucometer to monitor it regularly.

Consult a Physician immediately if dizziness or sugar levels below 50. Follow up after 1 month to review progress. I advise you to follow diet & lifestyle modification. Read about diabetes diet chart that you can follow to improve your health.

Taking Glycomet for Diabetes Causing Gas Trouble - JustDoc

I am taking Glycomet and losanorm for diabetes control. Glycomet is causing me gas trouble but my weight is also heavy. Should I stop taking Glycomet and is there any alternative to get relief from gastric problems as side effects from such medicines.
