Possible Interaction: Acarbose and Pectin



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Fifty milligrams acarbose, 100 mg acarbose and the combination of 50 mg acarbose with 4.2 g pectin significantly inhibited the postprandial peak glucose concentration (p less than 0.01).
The combination of acarbose with pectin was the only treatment that significantly inhibited the plasma insulin peak (p less than 0.05).
The lowest plasma glucose concentration, observed 60-150 minutes after ingestion of the meal, was significantly increased by the addition of 50 mg acarbose (p less than 0.01) and the combination of acarbose with pectin (p less than 0.05).
