Has helped my cravings and especially my cravings for sweets. Have lost 19lbs since starting it 8 weeks ago. Am thrilled with the way I feel and the results have been good and hopefully will continue to give me good results.

This is only my 3rd day on Januvia but I feel awesome! I was diagnosed with TypeII about 8 years ago and since that time I've never been able to get my diabetes under control no matter what I do.

I hope ... Show Full Comment
