When your meal plan and exercise routine can no longer keep your blood glucose in target, your doctor may recommend that you begin to take diabetes pills. Each type of pill works in a different way to lower blood sugar. Some pills work to help your body use glucose better, others force your pancreas to make more insulin. They work to make your own insulin work better or to help your body make more insulin. Together with your meal plan and exercise, they may help bring your blood glucose in target.
