Abvida M 50/500mg Tablets is a combination of Metformin and Vildagliptin which belongs to a group of medicines called Antidiabetic agents. Abvida M 50/500mg Tablets is used to treat type 2 diabetes (also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus) in adult patients, whose diabetes cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone and/or with other medicines used to treat diabetes (insulin or sulphonylureas such as glimepiride, glipizide).
Type 2 diabetes is a chronic medical condition in which the body does not make enough insulin, or the produced insulin does not work well. Symptoms include excessive urination, excessive thirst, hunger, fatigue, and blurred vision. Metformin decreases hepatic glucose production and intestinal absorption of glucose and improves insulin sensitivity (increases peripheral glucose uptake and utilization). Vildagliptin works by making the pancreas produce more insulin and less glucagon, thus leading to a decrease in blood glucose levels.
