Were you looking for more information about Metformin? Metform is a common misspelling of metformin.
Metformin (Glucophage®) is a medication that is commonly used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It can help lower blood sugar levels by decreasing the amount of sugar absorbed into the body and decreasing sugar production in the liver. Metformin comes in an extended-release form, two long-acting forms, and a liquid version. Before using any of these metformin products, you should talk to your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, have congestive heart failure, or have kidney problems.
