DiaBeta is medication for people with type 2 diabetes. The main purpose of DiaBeta is to lower blood sugar for people who have mild type 2 diabetes and have the ability to produce their own insulin. The DiaBeta medication will help your pancreas produce more insulin and at the same time it takes some of the work off of the pancreas. DiaBeta is an oral medicine and has to be taking either once or twice a day in accordance to your doctor’s wishes. Your doctor may increase the amount of DiaBeta you take if the amount that you are now taking is not having the desired effect. The opposite is true in regards to your blood sugar levels remaining stable; the doctor may take you off a higher dosage of DiaBeta.
DiaBeta will work in conjunction with other medications. The amount of benefit from DiaBeta that you receive is dependent on what other medications you are taking and how they are helping regulate your blood sugar level. As with all drugs there are some minimal chances of side effects. DiaBeta side effects include stomach problems allergies or skin rashes, and low blood sugar.

Your dosage will depend on how well your diabetes is controlled, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking. Non-insulin dependent diabetes can be helped with DiaBeta as long as it goes with a program of diet and exercise.
