What are Secretagogues?

Secretagogues work by increasing the production of insulin by the pancreas. They work only when the person with type 2 diabetes has some remaining insulin producing cells on the pancreas. Generally after having diabetes for 5 - 10 years these cells are no longer able to produce insulin therefore the secretagogue is ineffective.
