Type 2 diabetes is a condition that means your body can’t control your blood sugar levels well. This can have a big impact on your health.

The most commonly prescribed medication for type 2 diabetes is called Metformin. It isn’t a cure but can help to lower your blood sugar levels so they’re in a safe range.

Please note: where a generic product has been ordered we may use a range of manufacturers to provide you with your medication, in order to maintain our service levels.

Ordering with us is a simple process that only needs you to take a few steps:

I can not complain about my pills and I will definitely keep using this brand that Im using for a while. Before taking the medicine we have always a check-up by a doctor online that's can be very helpful.
