What is Sucanon®?:
Sucanon® is one of only several drugs approved in the world, belonging to a class of diabetic medications called insulin sensitizers.  Insulin sensitizers lower blood sugar by increasing the muscle, fat and liver’s sensitivity to insulin.  Insulin sensitizers are blood sugar normalizing or euglycemic drugs that help return the blood sugar to the normal range without the risk of low blood sugars.

1. Insulin binding to receptors and entering the cell, (which is impeded in NIDDM patients), is essential for the uptake of glucose 2. Sucanon® increases the binding of insulin to its receptors 3. Sucanon® increases the internalization of insulin 4. As a result, Sucanon® increases the intracellular level of insulin, which then increases the uptake of glucose.


Sucanon®  is a medication that helps the body make better use of its own insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar levels.  Type II Diabetics produce insulin, but their cells gradually lose the ability to absorb and use insulin, to get sugar out of the blood stream.  Sucanon®  transports sugar out of the blood stream and into cells where it can be burned.  Sucanon®  particularly helps muscle cells use insulin and thus draw sugar out of the blood stream.

Sucanon® increases sensitivity to insulin which leads to decreased blood sugar levels and a reduction of a wide range of Type II Diabetes symptoms,  including: weight gain, fatigue, excess thirst and excess urination.  The reduction in blood sugar levels also reduces the possibility of peripheral nerve damage; the damage caused to peripheral nerves by chronic high blood sugar can ultimately lead to impotence in men and amputation of limbs in both men and women.
