Sulfonylureas are a class of drugs that are used to treat type 2 diabetes. Sulfonylureas function by decreasing blood glucose levels and increasing the secretion of insulin from the pancreas’ beta cells. Sulfonylureas do not operate in patients with type 1 diabetes because their effect is dependent on the presence of active beta cells. Sulfonylureas promote insulin release by inhibiting ATP-sensitive potassium channels by lowering potassium permeability in beta cells. This causes the cell to depolarize and enhance calcium entry, resulting in an increase in insulin secretion.
