Pharmacology: Acarbose is an oral alpha glucosidase inhibitor used for the treatment of diabetes mellitus.
Learn about Acarbose (alpha-glucosidase inhibitors) and diabetes drugs. MDs provide answers.
Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors are oral anti-diabetic drugs used for diabetes mellitus type 2 that work by preventing the digestion of carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are normally converted into simple sugars, which can be absorbed through the intestine. Hence, alpha-glucosidase inhibitors reduce the impact of carbohydrates on blood sugar.

This video introduces the mechanism of action of drugs used for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes: Metformin, sulfonylureas, non-sulfonylureas, thiazolidinediones (TZDs), acarbose inhibitors and SGLT-2 inhibitors.

Diabetes: Sulfonylureas medication
Visual Learner Studios uses visual mnemonics to teach pharmacology fast and efficiently. Website: http://VisualLearner.net/ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/visuallearnerstudios Twitter: https://twitter.com/VL_Studios Diabetic Drugs - Drugs used for diabetes. Alright...Today, we will go over classes of drugs used to treat diabetes and examples within each class. To remind you of this, we want you to notice the poster on the wall for “Diabetes - The Musical”. Insulins: Lispro, Zinc, Glargine First up, are the Insulins which is represented by the INSULATED gargoyle as he’s wearing a jacket...The gargoyle with big LIPS, is a short-acting insulin called LISPRO. The ZINC rock in his hands is an intermediate acting insulin called ZINC. The JEANS he’s wearing, is a long acting insulin called GlarGINE. Biguanides: Metformin The next class are the Biguanides, which is represented by the IGUANA on the foreman. The MEAT FOREMAN is METFORMIN, which is a commonly used drug in this class. Sulfonylureas: Glyburide, Gliclazide Sulfonylureas are a class of drugs that are often used, and it is represented by the CELL PHONE. (SULFON-ylureas → CELL PHONE). Some examples are GLYBURIDE represented by the the BRIDE, and GLICLAZIDE which is the bride LICKing the lollipop. DPP-4 Inhibitors: Sitagliptin, Saxagliptin Next, are the Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors or DPP-4 Inhibitors, these are represented by the Gryffin, and the little inscription on his sax helps you remember this. Examples include, . SITAGLIPTIN which is the SITTING GRYFFIN, and SAXAGLIPTIN which is the SAX GRYFFIN. Thiazolidinediones: Rosiglitazone, pioglitazone This next class of drugs is a mouthful, the thiazolidinediones, which is represented by the THIGH LID on the glittery man in the poster. Examples are ROSIGLITAZONE and PIOGLITaZONE which are represented by the GLITTERY man’s ROSE and PIE, respectively. Selective sodium-glucose transporter (SGLT)-2 inhibitors - Canagliflozin Selective sodium-glucose transporter-2 inhibitors or SGLT-2 inhibitors is represented by the STOP...I mean “SGLT” sign. An example is Canagliflozin, which is CAN FROZEN. Alpha Glucosidase Inhibitors: Acarbose Alpha glucosidase inhibitors is represented by the car with the ALPHA bumper sticker. An example in this class is ACARBOSE, represented the CAR. Glucagon-like peptide-1 inhibitors: Exenatide Lastly, Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Inhibitors or GLP-1 Inhibitors is represented by the G on the car’s wheel center cap. The example is EX-ENATIDE, which is the orange X on the wheel.
