Trends in glyburide compared with insulin use for gestational diabetes treatment in the United States, 2000-2011.
The researchers sought to characterize pharmacologic treatment of women with gestational diabetes (GDM) by describing trends in the use of glyburide compared with insulin over the past decade (2000-2011) and identifying predictors of initial choice of pharmacotherapy. They found that glyburide has replaced insulin as the more common pharmacotherapy for GDM among those privately insured.
