Spanish term or phrase: sulfiminurea / sulfominorea / sulfimorea
Hi - I'm translating doctors' answers to some questions on a new drug for diabetes. This has come up in their answers, and despite the different spellings, I think this is the same thing (it's been copied from a handwritten sheet - with lots of mistakes, probably) and I think it refers to SULPHONYLUREA. Can anyone confirm? Or am I wrong?

- Sulfiminurea

- Las sulfominoreas que pierden efecto con el tiempo. Si fracasa y les pones insulina ya no hay nada más puedes tirar la toalla.

Sulphonylurea
Explanation:
Nikki:
I agree. They're probably talking about 'sulfonilureas', in Sp. They are mainly used to treat non-insuline dependent diabetes.

Good luck
