Rosiglitazone and Glimepiride and Fasting Blood Sugar
Fasting blood sugar is another way to study the effects of diabetes drugs. In studies, people taking rosiglitazone and glimepiride lowered fasting blood sugar by up to 80 mg/dL on average, while people taking just rosiglitazone or just glimepiride lowered their fasting blood glucose by only 42 to 57 mg/dL on average.
