Januvia

Has anyone tried Januvia when their A1c was 5.8? If so, did it help with Type 2 insulin resistance?

Did you have side effects?

How long did it take to see results?

Re: Januvia

Januvia won't help insulin resistance. It tweaks the pancreas to release more insulin, which will affect the blood sugar. The problem with this for me is that you will be putting more stress on the beta cells and many believe that it may result in the cells dying sooner. There are some that believe otherwise but I wouldn't want to take that chance. At 5.8, I would rely on diet and exercise, which are very effective.

Re: Januvia

My doctor nevery tried me on Januvia after 12 years of oral meds, metformin.

Can insulin also destroy beta cells? I am wondering if insulin will cause your pancreas to make less insulin on its own becoming dependent on insulin like with thyroid therapy?

Does anyone know?
