Abstract

Insulin has been the mainstay of treatment of diabetes during pregnancy for decades. Although glyburide and metformin are classified as category B during pregnancy, recent research has suggested that these oral agents alone or in conjunction with insulin may be safe for the treatment of gestational diabetes (GDM). This paper summarizes the data on the use of glyburide and metformin for treatment of GDM.
