What is Eucreas?

Eucreas is an anti-diabetic, which contains two active ingredients: metformin and vildagliptin. It is available in tablet form and comes in four different strengths: 50 mg, 850 mg, 50 mg and 1,000 mg.

Eucreas is used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes; it regulates the amount of glucose in the bloodstream.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes causes a person's blood glucose level to become too high. It is a lifelong condition and there are two main types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.

Type 2 diabetes is where the body does not produce the sufficient amount of insulin or when the body's cells do not react properly to insulin.

Insulin is a hormone, produced by the pancreas, which controls the amount of sugar in the blood. When you digest food, it enters into your bloodstream and then insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into your cells. It is then broken down to produce energy however; if you have type 2 diabetes, your body is unable to break it down. This is because there is either not enough insulin to regulate the level of glucose in the blood, or the insulin produced is ineffective at regulating blood sugar levels.

Diabetes is linked to being overweight and living an inactive lifestyle. A family history of type 2 diabetes could also increase the risk of developing the condition at some point in your life.

Treating diabetes

It is important to treat diabetes because if the condition is left untreated it can lead to a number of health complications including: cardiovascular disease, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage and hearing impairment.

Type 2 diabetes is often treated with a combination of medicines and changes to your diet and lifestyle. Your doctor will discuss appropriate treatments with you. It's important to speak to your GP about your condition before you buy Eucerin online.

Your condition will need to be reviewed regularly by your doctor to ensure that your condition is under control and that your medicine is working effectively.


How does Eucreas work?

Eucreas tablets work by controlling the level of sugar in your blood. The two active ingredients: metformin and vildagliptin, stimulate insulin production and reduce the amount of glucose in the blood.


How Do I Take Eucreas?

Eucreas tablets are usually taken twice daily, one tablet in the morning and one in the evening. You should swallow one tablet whole with a glass of water with or just after food.

The dose you are prescribed will depend on your current treatment and the expected effect of Eucreas.
