Indications & Dosage of Diamicron MR
Diamicron MR is used to manage blood sugar levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes.

Diamicron MR may be used alone or along with other diabetes medications. The drug will not cure diabetes, but only manage the blood sugar levels.
Insulin is an important hormone needed by the body to regulate carbohydrate and fat metabolism. The pancreas in a Type 2 diabetes patient does not produce enough insulin required by the body, which can cause complications.
