Drug information of pramlintide

Insulin is a hormone that is naturally made in the body by the pancreas. This helps control blood sugar levels. If your body does not make enough insulin to meet its needs, or if it does not use the insulin it makes effectively, it can lead to a condition called diabetes. People with diabetes need treatment to control the amount of glucose (sugar) in their blood; Because good blood sugar control reduces the risk of further complications. Some people have their blood sugar controlled by making changes in their diet, but to control their blood sugar in others, medications such as pramilintide are prescribed along with dietary changes and regular exercise.

Praminectide acts like a special natural substance called amyrin and lowers blood sugar. This drug reduces the movement of food through the stomach and thus reduces appetite and the amount of sugar produced by the liver. Praminectide does not replace insulin, but may reduce the amount of insulin you need.
