What is Janumet?
Janumet is a combination of two different diabetes medications, sitagliptin and metformin, both of which help control blood sugar levels in the body. Janumet is taken in pill form once daily. The dosage varies depending on the patient.
You should not take Janumet if you have severe kidney disease or ketoacidosis. Janumet has been shown to be effective at treating type 2 diabetes when combined with diet and exercise.
What does Simplefill Provide?

Plus, stress can have a negative impact on your health and your ability to manage your condition. Simplefill is here to alleviate this stress.
How does Janumet Work?
Janumet combines metformin and sitagliptin, which work together to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
Metformin is a first-line treatment for those with type 2 diabetes. It has been found to be especially effective in diabetes patients with obesity. Although the exact way it works is not fully understood, it decreases glucose production in the liver by about one third. It also makes certain tissues in the body more sensitive to insulin.
Sitagliptin (sold under the brand name Januvia) is a medication that is also used on its own to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by inhibiting the DDP-4 (dipeptidyl peptidase 4) enzyme. This enzyme breaks down the hormones GLP-1 and GIP that are released into the body after a meal. By preventing this breakdown, sitagliptin increases the secretion of insulin and suppresses glucagon, thus helping to regulate blood sugar levels.
