Abstract

Metformin plays an important role on nearly all stages of type 2 diabetes treatment. Easy form of metformin application are tablets in s.c. Gel Shield Diffusion System. This system concers on modyfied release of metformin, what increases its bioavailability. Such form of metformin is as effective as classical form in compensation of carbohydrate disturbances. This form shows also lower number of advers events from a gastrointestinal tract than classic form. It should be also better accepted by patients with type 2 diabetes.
