Prandin is a drug for diabetics that can be use ONLY if you have type II diabetes which means you are not insulin dependent, it helps control your blood sugars. When you take prandin just before you eat, you help your body release the insulin needed to handle glucose spikes. It begins to work quickly.

Prandin helps your body release insulin to handle the blood glucose from that meal. Then leaves your bloodstream quickly, and insulin levels return toward baseline between meals and during the night.
