Brief Summary

The study drug, fixed dose combination of acarbose and metformin, have already been approved to take together as a treatment for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Sometimes, researchers continue studying a treatment after it has been approved to learn more about how doctors decide which treatment to give to patients. In this study, the researchers want to learn more about how acarbose and metformin work when taken together and if the patients have any medical problems. The study will include patients with T2D that was diagnosed in the last 3 to 6 months. These patients will also have recently started treatment with acarbose and metformin. The study will include about 2,000 men and women in India who are at least 18 years old. All of the patients will take fixed dose combination of acarbose and metformin tablets based on their doctor's instructions. They will then visit their study site 4 times over 6 months. At these visits, their doctors will ask them questions about how they are feeling and what medications they are taking. If require, the doctors will take blood samples to measure the patients' blood sugar levels as per routine practice. The doctors will also do physical examinations and check the patients' overall health.
