Bayer is finally launching Precose (acarbose)
Bayer is finally launching Precose (acarbose)...a novel drug for type II, or non-insulin-dependent, diabetes.
Precose is an alpha-glucosidase inhibitor. Blocking this enzyme in the intestine slows the breakdown of carbohydrates to glucose. This reduces hyperglycemia...especially after meals.
Precose can be used alone...or with other antidiabetic meds.
