We are Certified



Miglitol is employed, either independently or in conjunction with other medications, to manage type 2 diabetes—a condition where the body struggles to utilize insulin effectively, leading to insufficient control over blood sugar levels. This is particularly relevant for individuals whose diabetes remains unmanageable through dietary measures alone. The medication acts by slowing the breakdown and absorption of table sugar and other complex sugars within the small intestine.

Consistently use this medication to derive the maximum benefit. To aid in remembering, take it at consistent times each day.
