medical indication and effects

Metformin is used to treat high blood sugar levels that are caused by type 2 of diabetes mellitus. With this type of diabetes, the produced insulin is unable to get sugar into the body-cells. That's why metformin should not be used to treat type 1 diabetes. Using metformin with an oral antidiabetic medicine like sulfonylurea, or with insulin, will help to lower blood sugar and help restore the own body energy production.
