Description

Diabefarm Pharmacodynamics
Diabefarm® MB is an oral hypoglycemic drug, sulfonylurea derivative of II generation. It stimulates insulin secretion (3-cells of the pancreas, increases insulin-secreting action of glucose, increases sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin. Stimulates the activity of intracellular enzymes – muscle glycogen synthetase. Shortens the interval from the moment of food intake to the beginning of insulin secretion. Restores the early peak of insulin secretion (unlike other sulfonylurea derivatives that affect mainly during the second stage of secretion). Reduces postprandial glucose elevation
In addition to its effect on carbohydrate metabolism, it improves microcirculation: it reduces platelet adhesion and aggregation, normalizes vascular permeability, prevents the development of microthrombosis and atherosclerosis, and restores the process of physiological parietal fibrinolysis. Reduces the sensitivity of vascular receptors to adrenaline. Slows down the development of diabetic retinopathy at nonproliferative stage. In diabetic nephropathy against the background of long-term use causes a significant reduction in the severity of proteinuria. Does not lead to weight gain, since it has a predominant effect on the early peak of insulin secretion and does not cause hyperinsulinemia; promotes weight loss in obese patients with an appropriate diet.

Indications
Diabetes mellitus type 2 in combination with diet therapy and moderate physical activity in the ineffectiveness of the latter.
