Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • In the last week my blood began appearing to have thinned significantly. When I test my Blood sugar my blood generally creates a small drop on my skin. In the last week it now appears to run or puddle.

    The bleeding however still appears to stop quickly which makes me believe that clotting remains normal. My feeling is that this is related to the Glyburide.
