Glumetza is a drug used singly or along with other medicines including insulin to treat Type 2 diabetes (inability to control the amount of blood glucose due to improper usage of insulin). The generic form helps to control glucose in the blood by decreasing the amount of glucose absorbed from food by the intestines and lowering the amount of insulin produced by the liver. It also helps by increasing the body's response to insulin which is a natural substance that controls blood glucose.
