Success rates for achieving glycemic control with glyburide vary from 79% to 86%. Studies evaluating predictors of failure with glyburide cite the following risk factors [86, 87, 88, 89] :

  • Advanced maternal age

  • Earlier gestational age at diagnosis

  • Higher gravidity and parity

  • Higher mean fasting glucose level
