Incretin mimetics

What are Incretin mimetics?

Incretin mimetics are agents that act like incretin hormones such as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). They bind to GLP-1 receptors and stimulate glucose dependent insulin release, therefore act as antihyperglycemics.

Incretin mimetics also suppress appetite and inhibit glucagon secretion. They slow gastric emptying and as a result prevent steep rise in post-prandial blood glucose levels.

Incretin mimetics are only used to treat type 2 diabetes.
