What is Glipizide for:

This medication is a sulfonylurea antidiabetic agent, prescribed for type 2 diabetes (condition in which the body does not use insulin normally and therefore cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood), particularly in people whose diabetes cannot be controlled by diet alone.

How does Glipizide work:

It increases the amount of insulin secretion and thus regulates the sugar level in the blood.
