What kind of insulin is suitable for use in pumps and DKA tx drips? Regular or short acting (lispro, aspart, glulisine). HY!
NAME THAT DRUG!: decreases heaptic gluconeogenesis, increases insulin activity Metformin
NAME THAT DRUG!: in the biguanide class Metformin
NAME THAT DRUG!: lactic acidosis is a rare but serious SE Metformin
NAME THAT DRUG!: stimulates insulin release which requires a functioning pancreas Sulfonylureas
Name 3 classic sulfonylurea drugs. Tolbutamide, glyburide, and glipizide

NAME THAT DRUG!: stimulates insulin release sulfonylurea and meglitinides
NAME THAT DRUG!: increases tissue glucose uptake and improves insulin sensitivity TZDs
NAME THAT DRUG!: mimcs action of GLD-1 (dec glucagon, inc insulin, delays gastric emptying) Exanatide and liraglutide
NAME THAT DRUG!: inhibits DPP-IV leading to dec glucagon, incr insulin, delayed gastric emptying Sitagliptin and saxagliptin
