Metformin 500mg, box of 28 tablets

Diabetes type 2 is a condition that affects our bodies’ ability to process and store sugar correctly. There is no cure but it can be well managed by drugs such as metformin. This keeps blood sugar levels normal preventing any damage to the body.

Using a home test works in the following steps:

  • Place an order and get your kit delivered to your door (delivery is free)
  • Collect your sample by following the instructions in the test kit
  • Send your samples to our UK-based, accredited partner laboratory (postage is free) 
  • Once your results are available (in 2 to 3 days), our doctors will review your results  
  • One of our doctors will contact you, via a secure and confidential message in your patient account, to let you know your results and give you advice and support on what to do next
In some cases, the doctor may need to ask for more information. They may contact you by phone, so make sure your telephone number is up to date in your online account.

Please note, where a generic product has been ordered we may use a range of manufacturers in order to provide you with your medication, in order to maintain our service levels.
