Micronase, Metformin and Mood

I have just started taking Micronase 1.25mg 1x/day (Glyburide) which helps the pancreas produce more insulin and helps it work better. I have been on Metformin for a couple of years now and just recently had the doseage increased to 850mg 3x/day. Metformin has been somewhat effective in helping my body respond better to the insulin I naturally produce and decreasing the amount of sugar that my liver makes and that my stomach/intestines absorb, but it wasn't enough.
My blood sugar levels have recently leveled off and I think it's in large part due to this new Micronase/Metformin combination. Lately I have noticed a change/decrease in my appetite and a change/increase in positive mood and general sense of feeling OK. I want to understand the relationship between insulin and hormones and the effect they have on mood and appetite. Can anyone suggest a starting point for me to research this? Thanks.

" Get the book "Reversing Diabetes" by D r. Julian Whitaker. It is very informative and before you know it you'll probably be off both medicines. Good Luck, and let me know how you're doing, Mary Anne Fiala "
