Eucreas is an oral medication in the form of tablets that are used to effectively treat patients with Type 2 diabetes. This type of diabetes is also known as non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and is not suitable for Type 1 diabetics.
This oral medication contains two active ingredients; metformin and vildagliptin. These two active ingredients are responsible for controlling and regulating the amount of sugar (glucose) levels in the blood. Eucreas tablets have been clinically proven to reduce blood sugar, which could potentially help prevent complications that arise as a result of Type 2 diabetes.
This medication is often prescribed to those who have taken the highest tolerated dose of metformin alone, or have taken vildagliptin and metformin as individual tablets, and not experienced sufficient results when combined with a healthy lifestyle consisting of moderate exercise and a nutritious diet.
You can buy this Type 2 diabetes treatment online from euroClinix after completing an online consultation. After our doctors have reviewed your request, your prescription will then be passed on to our registered pharmacy, and the treatment will be sent out for delivery the next day if ordered before 4.30pm.
People with Type 2 diabetes face a deficiency or absence of the hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin. Insulin is the main hormone responsible for regulating and controlling the sugar (glucose) levels in the blood. In Type 2 diabetes, the body produces insufficient levels of insulin and the cells in the body are resistant to the low quantities produced.
In a majority of cases, insulin makes the cells within the human body remove sugar from the blood, hence in Type 2 diabetes, the blood sugar levels can rise too high.
Eucreas works to control blood sugar levels by helping the body to produce less glucagon, while increasing the production of insulin. This is long-term treatment proven to help manage Type 2 diabetes and therefore reduce the risk of conditions associated with diabetes in the future.
Each Eucreas tablet contains the active ingredients metformin hydrochloride and vildagliptin that work together to control blood sugar levels:
