Rezulin (troglitazone) is now approved for INITIAL therapy of type 2 diabetes

    Rezulin (troglitazone) is now approved for INITIAL therapy of type 2 diabetes...and for combo use with a sulfonylurea.

    Initially, it was approved only as add-on therapy for patients poorly controlled on insulin.

    For initial therapy, Rezulin works about as well as metformin (Glucophage) or a sulfonylurea. It lowers blood sugar about 50 mg/dL...and reduces glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) up to 1.5%.
