Acarbose Description

Acarbose is a new oral hypoglycemic agent. Competitively inhibit glucoside hydrolase in the intestine. It reduces the decomposition of polysaccharides and sucrose into glucose, which slows the absorption of sugar accordingly, so it can have the effect of lowering blood glucose after a meal. It is generally used alone or in combination with other oral hypoglycemic drugs or insulin. Cooperate with food and drink to treat insulin-dependent or non-dependent diabetes.

Acarbose is used (with diet only or diet and other medications) to treat type 2 diabetes (a condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood).

  • Used as a pharmaceutical ingredient in hypoglycemic drugs
