Amaryl Effectiveness

Amaryl® (glimepiride) is a prescription medication used to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. But is Amaryl effective?
 
As a sulfonylurea medicine, Amaryl works to treat type 2 diabetes by helping the pancreas to produce more insulin. It also helps the body's cells respond better to insulin. As a result of these effects, this drug helps to lower blood sugar levels and keep them under control.
 
Clinical studies have looked at the effectiveness of Amaryl on lowering blood sugar levels. These studies have shown that using this medicine can help decrease the chances of developing diabetes complications, such as heart disease, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, and diabetic nephropathy.
