1. A method for modifying glucose metabolism in a glucose intolerant animal, comprising administering to the animal, in a single daily oral dosage, a composition including one or more di-, tri- or tetra-peptidyl boronate or di-, tri- or tetra-peptidomimetic boronate protease inhibitors, wherein the boronate replaces the C-terminal carboxylate moiety, which inhibit DPIV-mediated proteolysis with a Ki of less than about 10 nM in an amount sufficient to modify glucose metabolism but not sufficient to suppress the immune system of the animal.
