What is glyburide?
Glyburide is a prescription drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. Glyburide decreases your body’s blood glucose level and increases the pancreas’ production of insulin to get your type 2 diabetes under control. Not only does glyburide help manage blood sugar levels, but it can also help patients with type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.
Glyburide is prescribed in conjunction with other treatment measures such as exercise and dietary changes to help patients lose weight and prevent serious complications caused by diabetes.
