What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterized by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. It occurs when the body is unable to produce enough insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces.

What are diabetes medications?

Diabetes medications are drugs taken by mouth to help manage blood glucose levels in individuals with diabetes. They are often prescribed for people with Type 2 diabetes who do not require insulin therapy or who use these medications in combination with insulin or other injectables. These medications work in different ways to control blood sugar levels, including increasing insulin sensitivity, stimulating insulin production, and decreasing glucose production in the liver. Here is a list of some common oral diabetes medications:

Common Oral Diabetes Medications

  1. Biguanides

    • Metformin (Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Glumetza)
    • Action: Decreases glucose production in the liver and increases insulin sensitivity.
  2. Sulfonylureas

    • Glipizide (Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL)
    • Glyburide (Diabeta, Micronase)
    • Glimepiride (Amaryl)
    • Action: Stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin.
  3. Meglitinides

    • Repaglinide (Prandin)
    • Nateglinide (Starlix)
    • Action: Stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, similar to sulfonylureas but with a faster onset and shorter duration of action.
  4. Thiazolidinediones (TZDs)

    • Pioglitazone (Actos)
    • Rosiglitazone (Avandia)
    • Action: Increases insulin sensitivity in muscle and fat tissues.
  5. Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4) Inhibitors

    • Sitagliptin (Januvia)
    • Saxagliptin (Onglyza)
    • Linagliptin (Tradjenta)
    • Alogliptin (Nesina)
    • Action: Increases insulin production and decreases glucagon release.
  6. Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) Inhibitors

    • Canagliflozin (Invokana)
    • Dapagliflozin (Farxiga)
    • Empagliflozin (Jardiance)
    • Ertugliflozin (Steglatro)
    • Action: Prevents the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose back into the blood, causing excess glucose to be excreted in the urine.
  7. Alpha-Glucosidase Inhibitors

    • Acarbose (Precose)
    • Miglitol (Glyset)
    • Action: Slows the absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines.
  8. Combination Medications

    • Janumet (Sitagliptin and Metformin)
    • Kombiglyze XR (Saxagliptin and Metformin)
    • Invokamet (Canagliflozin and Metformin)
    • Xigduo XR (Dapagliflozin and Metformin)
    • Synjardy (Empagliflozin and Metformin)
    • Actoplus Met (Pioglitazone and Metformin)
    • Duetact (Pioglitazone and Glimepiride)
    • Kazano (Alogliptin and Metformin)
    • Jentadueto (Linagliptin and Metformin)
    • Metaglip (Glipizide and Metformin)

These medications are typically part of a comprehensive diabetes management plan that includes diet, exercise, and regular monitoring of blood glucose levels. Always consult with a healthcare provider for personalized advice and treatment options.
