How Does It Work?

  • Your pancreas produces a hormone called insulin. Insulin moves sugar (glucose) from the blood into the cells. The cells then use it as fuel for energy.
  • In type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t utilize insulin properly, so the sugar is not able to enter the cells and stays in your bloodstream.
  • Glimepiride increases the amount of insulin released from your pancreas. This insulin then lowers your blood sugar levels.
