This medication has the main active ingredient Gliclazide, which is a short-acting, high-potency, second-generation sulfonylurea compound. It shows hypoglycemic activity. It works by increasing peripheral insulin sensitivity. This antihyperglycemic agent is indicated for the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. It is a sulfonylurea class of insulin secretagogues that stimulates β cells of the pancreas to release insulin.
It also increases both basal insulin secretion and meal-stimulated insulin release. It promotes peripheral glucose utilization, reduces hepatic gluconeogenesis, and may increase the number and sensitivity of insulin receptors.
Given medication, Diamicron MR is approved in conjunction with diet and exercise regimens to control high blood sugar in non-insulin diabetic people. Regulating high blood sugar helps prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, circulation problems, and blindness.
