Why is Metformin 500mg prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes?

In type 2 diabetes your body is not able to properly use the insulin that it produces, leading to an excess of glucose in your blood. Metformin helps your body use the insulin it produces, while also reducing your liver's ability to release glucose into your blood stream. This helps control your blood glucose levels. Metformin is also the active ingredient in Glucophage, giving it its ability to treat type 2 diabetes. In fact, Metformin is the generic version of Glucophage. Furthermore, by taking Metformin many people with type 2 diabetes no longer have to constantly check their blood sugar levels, making Metformin a valuable tool in treating diabetes for many patients.
