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.

How to buy Januvia online?

Januvia can be purchased online by filling out an online consultation form that will be assessed by our partner doctors.

How does Januvia work?

Its active ingredient is sitagliptin which works by increasing the incretin hormones in the body. These hormones are released right after a meal and used by the body to induce the pancreas to produce insulin. The meds force the pancreas to produce more insulin when glucose levels in the blood are high and also decreases sugar produced by the liver. This process efficiently controls type 2 diabetes.

How to take Januvia?

The prescribed dose is 1 tablet of 100mg taken once daily. The dosage will vary if taken with other anti-diabetic medications or as advised by the doctor. Never take 2 doses in one day. May be taken with or without food. Always follow doctor’s instructions.


The recommended dose is at 100 mg taken 1 a day. Dosage may vary if you are taking other anti-diabetic meds.

Side effects and precautions

Each one has different reactions to the meds so the side effects may differ for each individual. The more common side effects are headache, painful extremities and joint problems. You can purchase Januvia, or buy Metformin UK, under the guidance of your doctor for the treatment of diabetes.
