Glyburide to Lower Blood Sugar

Clinical studies have shown that using glyburide (DiaBeta®, Glynase®, Micronase®) to lower blood sugar can help treat type 2 diabetes. The medication comes in the form of a tablet and is taken by mouth, usually once or twice a day.
 
Glyburide is part of a class of diabetes medications known as sulfonylureas. These drugs help the pancreas produce more insulin. They may also help the cells respond better to insulin, which helps to lower blood sugar and keep it under better control. Glyburide should be taken at the same time(s) each day to keep an even level of the medicine in your blood.
