For what would diazoxide be the better drug to take?

In brief: Diabetes

Diazoxide or "proglycem" is an oral hypoglycemic, which is particularly helpful in patients who suffer from hyperinsulinemia, or those who are not responding well to insulin.
I believe the mechanism of action is for diazoxide to increase the sensitivity of Insulin to peripheral receptors, helping glucose to pass across cell membranes into the inner cell, where it can be used to produce energ.
