Acarbose in Non-insulin-dependent Diabetes — Long-term Studies in Combination with Oral Agents

Conference paper

Abstract

Secondary failure of sulphonylurea treatment is often a problem in older diabetics. Maintaining a strict diet may be problematical and switching to insulin — even if it is only one injection — as often happens today (so-called combined therapy) causes psychological and social problems in these patients. Thus, combined treatment with sulphonylureas and acarbose might be a useful alternative to insulin if it is also effective over a longer period. This report gives an overview of published long-term studies with acarbose administered together with other antidiabetic oral agents in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
