D-phenylalanine – A Type 2 Diabetes Medication

D-phenylalanine (dee-fen-nel-AL-ah-neen) derivatives are a new form of oral Type 2 diabetes medication used to treat Type 2 diabetes.
Currently, there is just one D-phenylalanine derivative drug called
Starlix (nateglinide), which should be taken directly before or after
each meal.

D-phenylalanine derivative drugs are distinguished from other oral
medications because they help the pancreas (see below) make insulin
very quickly and in just a short amount of time.

Therefore, they help to lower the blood sugar level right after a meal. However, D-phenylalanine derivative drugs could lower the blood sugar level so low that you get hypoglycemia (hahy-poh-glahy-see-mee-uh).

Side effects may include:

  • low blood sugar
  • liver complications
  • interactions with other medications

  • Doctor’s Orders:  Eat Less and Exercise More!
