The "Metabolic Disorder Drugs Market Global Briefing 2017" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

The global metabolic disorder drugs market is expected to reach around $110 billion in 2020.

The metabolic disorders drugs market covers medications that are used in the treatment of metabolic diseases such as diabetes, thyroid, hyperparathyroidism, hypopituitarism, and hypoadrenalism. Some of the major drugs used in the treatment of metabolic diseases are Insulin, Methimazole, and Calcimimetics.

Development Of New Anti-Diabetic Drugs For Type 2 Diabetes - Drug manufacturers are developing various anti-diabetic drugs for type-2 diabetes treatment. Type 2 diabetes is a noninsulin-dependent diabetes that affects sugar (glucose) metabolism of the patient by either resisting or restricting the effects of insulin.

In July 2017, researchers at the University of California found that Amlexanox, a repurposed asthma drug with anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties, can improve blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetic patients. Similarly, in April 2017, scientists from the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) in India had found that chalcone, a plant-derived substance, can be used to produce an anti-diabetic drug that can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood glucose levels in patients with type-2 diabetes.
