It depends on individual's condition how much dose the person can tolerate. One may have some side effects at higher doses. Not everyone can be prescribed maximum recommended dosage.

Indiacratus , Sri samarth and Gangadarn nair all your comments aregood and useful

For r diet Indiacratus ent is good and useful As a diabetic persons at any circumstances cannot leave the dietary plan everyday and also do not keep Doctos out for consultation. and do not neglect their suggestion. now ther are so many Doctors and specialists avilable So no Doctors cannot misguided

Doctors always says to take nutritional diets In Ayurveda they also says eat one portion grain 2 portion vegitables and one portions fruit curd and butter milk and remaining one portion left free donot eat more only sufficient meals only consumed . of course carb contain heavy sugar but it is digestible to all persons even diseases persons and oldage persons For diabetic persons to restrict the sugar content items to least amount and after take guidance of Doctors is good one Thanks to all members

Glimepiride is used along with diet and exercise, and sometimes with other medications, to treat type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood). Glimepiride lowers blood sugar by causing the pancreas to produce insulin (a natural substance that is needed to break down sugar in the body) and helping the body use insulin efficiently. This medication will only help lower blood sugar in people whose bodies produce insulin naturally.

Glimepiride + Metformin are widely prescribed anti-diabetic medications in India. It is affordable and effective. Side effect: frequent hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Total sales in India comes to Rs.105 crores.
