What are Non-sulfonylureas?
Biguanides are classed as non-sulfonylureas. Metformin is the only available biguanide for diabetes treatment. It inhibits the amount of glucose produced by the liver, increases the insulin-receptor binding and stimulates tissue uptake of glucose. Metformin does not stimulate the pancreas to make or release more insulin so doesn't cause hypoglycemia.
Metformin is used to treat Type 2 diabetes.
