What is MIGTOR 50?
Migtor containing the active ingredient miglitol is used along with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. It works by delaying the absorption of carbohydrates to decrease blood sugar levels following meals. Treating high blood sugar levels will help prevent kidney damage, nerve problems, blindness, loss of limbs and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
