Focus and Market

The current approach to forestalling diabetic complications concentrates on improving blood glucose levels and decreasing HbA1c. Despite “optimal” management with insulin and/or oral hypoglycemic agents and the advent of new anti-diabetic therapies; more than 70% of patients remain out of glycemic control.


Glycadia’s experienced R&D team is bringing new scientific discoveries to clinical trials of innovative products for complications of diabetes, including nephropathy, retinopathy and cardiovascular disease.

Meeting a National Health Crisis

With a market exceeding 100 million individuals in the United States alone, Glycadia is out to challenge the epidemic, with results. There are no drugs currently available that directly target diabetes-specific abnormalities underlying the microvascular and macrovascular complications of this disease. Glycadia addresses this massive, yet underserved, critical human healthcare need.
