Generic Glucovance is a medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is a perfect mean to manage this condition, able to lower the glucose level in blood both in the fasted state and after having a meal and to decrease the glucose production in liver and its intestinal absorption. It does not stimulate insulin production and, thus, it has no hypoglycemic effect. Glucovance is especially useful for people with stable and well-manageable glycemic level.
