I am a insulin dependent type II diabetic. My sugars were in the high 200's My medical team is using this drug to try to wake up my beta cells in my pancreas and/or to see if they were dead. It has helped lower my sugars 50 points. Noone can answer the question though..are my beta cells waking up?

I take his with Glimepiride and it works great. I was skeptical that one dose a day could work for 24 hrs but it does. I finally get blood sugars of 97 to 115. Normal on metaformin was near 150. It's the best thing since baked bread.

It's not as effective as Avandia in controlling my blood sugar but on the other side Avandia is thought to cause congestive heart failure. This drug is extremely expensive and is not covered by Medicare.

Comment:
Since using Januvia, my blood sugars are not dropping below normal which was the original problem. They are now going above normal ranging from 140 to 300. This drug was suppose to manage the glucose levels, both high and lows, but it is not effective in controlling the highs.
