Glucobay 100mg is one of the most effective medicines suggested to a person with non-insulin-dependent diabetes (type 2 diabetes). It helps in keeping the blood sugar level after having a meal or while fasting. It belongs to a group of medicine called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. Glucobay 100mg slowers the digestion process of complex carbohydrates thereby not enabling the blood sugar level to rise rapidly. It can be given when a restricted diet alone or a restricted with other medications is unable to lower the blood sugar level. If the diabetic patient is able to keep their blood sugar level in check then it reduces the risk of other complicated effects like kidney damage and loss of limbs.
