Metformin Hydrochloride Description

Metformin is now a first-line agent for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and can be used alone or in combination with sulfonylureas, thiazolidinediones or other hypoglycemic agents. It can increase the activity of AMPK and reduces blood glucose by more than 50% in mice, according to the research. In recent years, more and more research has focused on the role of metformin in cancer.
