The annual average of consultations in familiar medicine is highest in the scheme of glibenclamida and metformina (10.0). The highest cost corresponds to the scheme glibenclamida and metformina (€173.6). In the scene of 130 mg/dl the best relation cost effectiveness appears in the metformina scheme, to obtain the 100% of effectiveness has a cost of €1,657 in scheme insulin and metformina, euros695 in the scheme glibenclamida and metformina, and e334 in scheme metformina Conclusion: Best relation cost effectiveness corresponds to the metformina scheme.
