Precose (Acarbose) is used with a proper exercise and diet program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Proper control of diabetes may lessen your risk of getting a heart attack or stroke. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Precose belongs to a class of drugs called alpha-glucosidase inhibitors. It works in your intestines to slow the breakdown and absorption of carbohydrates from foods that you eat. This keeps your blood sugar from going up too high after you eat.
