Januvia didn't work for me. it also caused me to have stomach issues which are now gone I am now on Trulicity injections. It is not an insulin It works on my insulin resistance.

This is the link to diet. If anyone interesting to all diets, fasting diet, keto diet. Interesting to read. Most important, use your own understanding before getting into deeper problem

I used to be on Metformin for almost 10 years with Glipizide two times daily. Got heart attack, strokes a few, and now in wheelchair. I survived only because in 2011 I dropped all and started to take insulin. 11 units at first shot. Now I take 300 units daily.
I would not take any oral med, no any add-on. Just insulin. It is easy when sugar is not very high. It is difficult when sugar over 599 mg/dl, limit of meter.

METformin has been great for me since I was diagnosed, but apparently, I need more help, The current plan is to supplement the METformin with Januvia or something else. 2000 mg METforminXR vs 1500 mg didn't change much.

Never used Januvia, but have been on Metformin -- and it helped me get my blood sugars under control. Main side effect was som nausea in the beginning. I did get used to the med though and that decreased. I was on it for 16 mths.

Hi all,

My A1C last checkup was 6.5 after being 5.4 for most of last year. been fighting some low-grade infections, and on antibiotics most of the last 3 months. have been orr them for about a month, but my blood sugar in the AM is still high for me - 137 vs 110 this time last year.

My doctor and I discussed additional oral meds (I'm on 1500 mg METformin XR currently).

Januvia sounded like a reasonable candidate given the relative lack of side effects in the literature.

Anyone here using Januvia and Metformin and care to comment?

thanks!
Dave
