ABSTRACT
QUESTION: I practise in a remote community in Manitoba. Quite a few of my patients experience gestational diabetes. Their compliance with the insulin regimen is abysmal. Can I give them an oral medication? ANSWER: Recent studies have indicated that glyburide does not cross the human placenta and that its effectiveness and safety profiles are similar to those of insulin.
