Glucobay 25 mg is a prescription medicine that is given to people suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus. 

25mg of Glucobay contains Acarbose and belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. 

Doctors often prescribe Acarbose in combination with other medications to help lower your blood sugar levels after meals. 

Glucobay tablet delays the absorption of sugar in your blood from the small intestine.

How does Glucobay 25 mg work? 

Glucobay is an anti-diabetic medication that helps to lower abnormally high blood sugar levels by reducing the process of carbohydrate digestion. 

Acarbose acts on the intestinal walls and pancreas, further preventing the action and absorption of some enzymes. By preventing this activity, the Glucobay tablet decreases postprandial blood glucose and insulin levels.

Take Glucobay at the dose and duration directed by the doctor. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of plain water. Do not crush, chew, or break it.

The doctor will decide the dose and how often you need to take it so that your body gets the right amount of medicine to control your blood sugar levels.
