How Gliclazide works

Gliclazide effectively controls blood sugar levels, where gliclazide makes the pancreas secrete more insulin to digest the circulating sugars (glucose) in the blood. It also makes the body more sensitive to insulin which helps in utilizing the circulating blood glucose (sugars) leading to decrease in blood glucose levels.

  • hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels)
  • dizziness
  • headache

  • Maintain a balanced and nutritious diet. Consume entire foods such as vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and whole grains. Processed foods, sugary snacks and beverages, and foods high in saturated and trans fats should be avoided. Avoid skipping meals. It is important to eat regular meals while taking this medicine to reduce the risk of low blood glucose levels
  • Regular physical activity will help you control your blood sugar levels, enhance your insulin sensitivity, and maintain a healthy weight. Aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise per week, as well as strength training twice a week
