UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Diabetes. Below is what he has to say.

Diabetes is a disease which impairs the body's ability to produce insulin, resulting in the abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates, which leads to elevated levels of blood glucose. People with diabetes can experience a number of complications including skin and eye problems, nerve damage that can cause painful tingling sensation in the hands and feet, kidney disease that can eventually lead to kidney failure, high blood pressure and much more.

Symptoms of diabetes can include blurred vision, feeling tired, increased thirst and the need to pee more frequently. Diabetes can be managed with dietary changes, exercise and medications. If you have diabetes it is very important to take your medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor and always attend your regular checkups. For convenience you can order your diabetes medications, such as Competact, Glucophage SR, Metformin and Onglyza from UK Meds.

Janumet is a combination medication containing 2 active ingredients metformin and sitagliptin. Sitagliptin is classified under DPP-4 inhibitors medications. It increases incretin hormones in the intestine after eating. These hormones raise insulin levels only when glucose levels are too high in the blood. It reduces amount of sugars in the body and those produced by the liver.

Metformin is a biguanide medication that decreases the amount of glucose produced by liver cells absorbed by the intestines or stomach. It assists the body making it respond more efficiently to naturally produced insulin by the body.

How to take Janumet?

It is best to take 1 tablet twice daily with a meal and a glass of water. The tablet must be taken whole. Do not split, cut or break the tablet. If you miss a dose, wait until the next one is due rather than taking an extra to make up for the missed dose. Take the meds regularly at the same time every day.


The dosage may differ depending on the anti-diabetic medications currently being taken and could be adjusted depending on the patient’s response to the active ingredient. A 50mg dose is the only one available online that is clinically proven effective.
