RE: Insulin Resistance and Diabetes….

Some oral pills used to treat Type 2 diabetes, including glyburide (brand names Micronase, DiaBeta, and Glynase), glipizide (Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL), glimepiride (Amaryl), repaglinide (Prandin), nateglinide (Starlix), sitagliptin (Januvia), saxagliptin (Onglyza), and linagliptin (Tradjenta) lower blood glucose levels by boosting insulin secretion. Others work by helping the body to overcome insulin resistance. Metfomin (Glucophage and others) works primarily by decreasing the liver’s glucose production. Pioglitazone (Actos) and rosiglitazone (Avandia) work primarily by making muscle and fat tissues more responsive to insulin, so that they use glucose more readily.
