Avandia diabetes drug bottle and tablets. This drug belongs to a group of drugs known as thiazolidinediones that are used to treat type II diabetes. It controls blood sugar levels by reducing the production and secretion of glucose by the liver and increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin, the hormone that regulates blood glucose levels. Avandia requires that some insulin is produced by the pancreas and so cannot be used to treat type I diabetes. Avandia is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline.
