Lanie: On the first night of taking my new blood sugar medicine (Janumet 50 mg/500 mg), my sugar count went from 181 (two days before I took the new med), down to 159 the next day (fasting before breakfast reading), a drop of 22 points.
Last night, I took the 2nd such Janumet pill at about
9 p.m., and this morning my before breakfast, fasting reading was 136, which is 45 points lower than the 181 reading two days before I took the first Janumet tablet.
So, the Janumet 50mg/500 mg is exceeding all expectations. The pharmacist said the Janumet blood sugar medicine has an extra medicine than does the just straight Metformin to help lower blood sugar.
The net says, "Janumet 50 mg/500 mg tablet is a combination of two antidiabetic medicines: Sitagliptin and Metformin. They help your pancreas produce more insulin, facilitate effective use of insulin by the body, and reduce excess sugar that your liver makes. Together, they provide better control of blood sugar."
Even though my lowest number (136) so far on this new medicine, Janumet, is not 110, the high number for non-diabetic, I'll take it compared to the 170s and the 180s that's I've seen.
I would again suggest people pay a visit to their doctor to find out what the latest medicines are for diabetes and other conditions, and perhaps get some tips on how to possibly avoid these conditions to begin with.
I think the best way to treat diabetes is not to get it. (Exercise, low carb diet, weight loss, large sugar reduction or elimination. Positive attitude.)
