Description

Miglitol is a reversible inhibitor of intestinal alpha-glucosidases. Under the influence of miglitol, the digestion of complex carbohydrates into absorbable monosaccharides in the small intestine is dosedependently delayed. Administration of miglitol thus leads to reduced postprandial hyperglycaemia and a smoothing effect on fluctuations in the daily blood glucose profile.
