About Janumet and Diabetes 2
JANUMET is a medicine that enhances the body’s own ability to keep your blood sugar within a healthy range. JANUMET targets all 3 key factors to lower blood sugar:
1. helps your pancreas make and release more insulin;
2. helps your body use the insulin that it makes more effectively (improves insulin sensitivity);
3. decreases excess sugar that your body makes.
JANUMET tablets contain 2 prescription medicines, sitagliptin (JANUVIA®) and metformin. JANUMET can be used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adult patients with type 2 diabetes when your doctor determines that JANUMET is right for you.
Along with diet and exercise, JANUMET can be used to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when your doctor determines that JANUMET is right for you. JANUMET also helps to control blood sugar between and after meals. Keeping at a healthy weight is an important part of taking care of your diabetes. A healthy weight is good for your heart and can help lower your blood sugar levels. Most people with type 2 diabetes struggle to reach or maintain a healthy weight. This can be discouraging. So you’ll be glad to know that JANUMET is not likely to cause weight gain.
When diabetes is out of control, it means your blood sugar (blood glucose) is too high. High blood sugar may not make you feel sick. But even if you have no symptoms, controlling your blood sugar is important for your health. That’s because high blood sugar can lead to serious problems over time.
When your blood sugar is not controlled, too much sugar stays in your blood for a long time. That can damage blood vessels and nerves. This damage can cause: Kidney disease; Blindness; Nerve damage; Foot problems; Heart disease.
Over many years, high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) can lead to serious problems. Kidney disease can lead to kidney failure and the need for dialysis. Blood vessel damage in the eyes can lead to blindness. Nerve damage in the feet can lead to the need for amputation. And heart disease can lead to death. Heart disease is, in fact, the number 1 cause of death in people with diabetes.
You may not want to think about these possibilities—no one really wants to. But the good news is that you can help avoid these problems by taking good care of yourself. This means taking steps to lower your blood sugar level.
In clinical studies, nearly twice as many patients reached their blood sugar goals taking JANUMET than those taking only metformin.
