Glempa M 12.5mg/500mg Tablet is a combination medication that contains two active ingredients: Empagliflozin & Metformin. Empagliflozin belongs to the class of drugs known as sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, while metformin is classified as a biguanide. This combination is prescribed for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Empagliflozin: Acts by inhibiting the reabsorption of glucose in the kidneys, leading to increased urinary excretion of glucose.
Metformin: Works by reducing hepatic glucose production, decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose, and enhancing insulin sensitivity.
Glempa M Tablet is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. It helps control blood sugar levels through different mechanisms: empagliflozin promotes the excretion of glucose in the urine, while metformin reduces hepatic glucose production and improves insulin sensitivity.
Mechanism of Action:
Empagliflozin: Inhibits sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) in the kidneys, resulting in decreased glucose reabsorption and increased urinary glucose excretion.
Metformin: Decreases hepatic glucose production, inhibits gluconeogenesis, reduces intestinal absorption of glucose, and enhances peripheral glucose uptake and utilization by improving insulin sensitivity.
Glempa M Tablet is typically taken orally with meals, as directed by a healthcare provider. The dosage may vary depending on individual response and other factors. Patients should adhere to the dosage instructions provided by their healthcare provider.
