Sucraid (sacrosidase) Disease Interactions

There are 2 disease interactions with Sucraid (sacrosidase):

Major

Sacrosidase (applies to Sucraid) allergies

Major Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility. Applicable conditions: Asthma

The use of sacrosidase is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to yeast, yeast products, glycerin (glycerol), or papain. Also there is a report of a severe reaction that required admission to the ICU in a child with asthma, therefore, caution is recommended in patients with asthma or severe allergies. Care should be taken to administer initial doses of this agent near (within a few minutes of travel) a facility where acute hypersensitivity reactions can be adequately treated. Alternatively, the patient may be tested for hypersensitivity to sacrosidase through skin abrasion testing.

Moderate

Sacrosidase (applies to Sucraid) diabetes

Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applicable conditions: Diabetes Mellitus

Sacrosidase has to be used cautiously in patients with diabetes as it has shown to increase the absorption of glucose and fructose. This should be carefully considered when planning the diet and antidiabetic regimen on these patients. Blood sugar levels should be monitored carefully in patients with diabetes who receive sacrosidase.
