In brief: Improved Blood Sugar

By tablets I am assuming you are on an oral diabetic medication.
The primary effect is lowered blood sugar levels and improved health when used properly. Adverse effects are numerous, and your pharmacist and doctor can help you with this. However, common side-effects include nausea (any pill can cause this), an allergic reaction, and excessively low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).
