Glyset (Miglitol) is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen the risk of a heart attack or stroke

Miglitol works in the intestines to slow the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates from foods that you eat. This effect helps lessen the rise in blood sugar after a meal

Glyset is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Proper dietary management alone may be effective in controlling blood glucose and symptoms of hyperglycemia. 

The importance of regular physical activity should also be stressed, and cardiovascular risk factors should be identified and corrective measures taken where possible

Do's

  • Take Glyset exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider, usually 3 times a day with the first bite of a meal.
  • Take Glyset consistently to manage your blood sugar effectively. Aim to take it at the same time each day.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your blood sugar is not controlled (too high or too low). They may need to adjust your Glyset dosage or treatment plan.

Don'ts

  • Don't take more Glyset than prescribed or take it more often than directed.
  • Don't skip or delay your Glyset dose unless instructed by your healthcare provider.
  • Don't take Glyset without food as it can cause low blood sugar. Take it with the first bite of your meal.
  • Don't abruptly stop taking Glyset without consulting your healthcare provider. This can cause blood sugar spikes.
