Acarbose, the active ingredient of GLUCOBAY®, is an alpha glucosidase inhibitor. GLUCOBAY® is a drug used in the oral treatment of diabetes. It acts by inhibiting the effect of the enzyme that breaks down sugars in the small intestine. Thus, the digestion of sugars is delayed and the mixing into the blood slows down. With this effect, GLUCOBAY® reduces the increase in blood sugar after meals.

It is defined as hidden sugar when the fasting blood sugar value is between 140-200 mg / dl and the fasting blood sugar value is between 100125 mg
