Pills for Diabetes

Question from Davie, Florida, USA:

My doctor says that Starlix will not work if you have taken glyburide before! I find no research or evidence of this.

Answer:

From: DTeam Staff

I think that what the doctor must have really said is that Starlix [nateglinide] could be taken instead of glyburide [a pill for Type 2 diabetes], but that it would be less effective if the two were taken together. Both promote insulin release, but via different receptors and with different timing.
