Dibchek-GP is a combination of Glipizide and Metformin hydrochloride. Glipizide is a sulphonylurea which reduces blood glucose level by stimulating the release of insulin from pancreatic cells. Metformin is a biguanide which improves hepatic and peripheral tissue sensitivity to insulin hence improves glucose tolerance in patients with Type II diabetes. It reduces the amount of glucose produced by liver and absorbed by small intestine.
Dibchek-GP is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of the product and in conditions such as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, renal or hepatic failure, alcoholism, patients undergoing surgery, cardiac failure, pregnancy and lactation.
