Diabecon is used for patients suffering from non-insulin dependent diabetes, produced by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare - focused on producing and developing safe, natural and innovative remedies that help people live better and healthier.
Diabecon increases the peripheral utilization of glucose. Diabecon increases the hepatic and muscle glycogen content. Diabecon promotes b-cell repair/regeneration and increases the C-peptide level.
As it has antioxidant properties, Diabecon protects the b-cells from oxidative stress. Diabecon exerts an insulin-like action. By reducing the glycated hemoglobin level, normalizing the microalbuminuria and modulating the lipid profile, Diabecon minimizes the long-term diabetic complications.
It is useful in patients with non-insulin dependent (type 2) diabetes and can be used as either monotherapy or in combination with other antidiabetic medicines. It can also be used in patients with insulin-dependent (type 1) diabetes as an additional therapy along with other medicines.
Diabecon is available in capsules which are taken by mouth.
Monotherapy: 2 tabs bid before food in newly detected type 2 diabetes; Adjuvant therapy: 1 tab bid before food as an adjuvant to other oral antidiabetics or insulin. The dosage may be titrated depending on the patient's response.
