In brief: Not many

Glyburide is a sulfonourea (it forces your pancreas to produce more insulin).
Metformin does three things... It helps your Insulin work better by making the Insulin receptors in the body more sensitive, it slows glucose absorption in the intestine, and slows the production of glucose by the liver.
