What are sulphonamides? can they be added to the diabetics?

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), MBBS, MD - Internal Medicine, MD - Consultant Physician, MD - Diabetology, MD - General Medicine, ACLS
General Physician,
Sulphonamide are a group of antibiotics. There are many classes of drugs used to treat diabetes, one among them is sulfonylurea. People with 'sulfa' allergy should avoid sulphonamide, but the sulfonylurea on other hand are considered safe according to one study. Good luck!
