Glimepiride lowers the blood glucose level by stimulating pancreatic beta cells to produce more insulin and by inducing increased activity of intracellular insulin receptors and metformin improves hyperglycemia primarily through its suppression of hepatic glucose production  and increases insulin sensitivity thus enhances peripheral glucose uptake and delay the  absorption of glucose from the gastrointestinal tract.
