Rosiglitazone-Metformin Pharmacological Information

Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, a condition called type 2 diabetes (diabetes mellitus) develops. People with diabetes need treatment to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people have their blood sugar controlled by dietary changes, but others, such as rosiglitazone-metformin, are prescribed to control their blood sugar.
