Glucovance

Alternatives to Glucovance

In general, type 2 diabetes treatment begins with lifestyle changes (for example, weight loss, exercise, and diet). If lifestyle changes are not effective at managing diabetes, medication, such as Glucovance, may be necessary.
 
The main goal of diabetes medicine is to lower blood sugar levels enough to reduce your risk of developing problems related to diabetes, such as heart, nerve, eye, or kidney problems. Because Glucovance can lower blood sugar levels, people may be able to lower their risk of developing problems related to high blood sugar.
 
For most people, this medication is quite effective at controlling blood sugar. It is also generally well-tolerated. However, it is possible that side effects will occur during treatment or that the medicine may not work as well as needed. In these cases, you may need to combine Glucovance with another diabetes medicine, such as a thiazolidinedione or insulin. You may also wish to consider a substitute for Glucovance. These substitutes could include other combination medications or a different type of diabetes medication.
