Glimepiride is a sulfonylurea indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults in the treatment of noninsulin-dependent (type 2) diabetes mellitus. Glimepiride primarily lowers blood glucose by stimulating the release of insulin from pancreatic beta cells, and increasing sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin. Sulfonylureas bind to the sulfonylurea receptor in the pancreatic beta-cell plasma membrane, leading to closure of the ATP-sensitive channel, which reduces potassium conductance and causes depolarization of the membrane. Membrane depolarization stimulates calcium ion influx and the increase in intracellular calcium ion concentrations induces the secretion of insulin.
