Diabetes pill.: Diabeta is a brand of the medication glyburide. It is an effective treatment for type 2 diabetes. It is available as generic Glyburide (lower in cost). It may not be the safest of this class, known as sulfonylurea medications, however (concerns about hypoglycemia in patients with kidney disease and heart effects in patients with heart disease).
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
