Janumet 50/500mg Tablet 14'S Description

Janumet 50/500 mg tablet is an antidiabetic medicine. It helps lower blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus when taken with a healthy diet and exercise regimen. Janumet tablet i

s a combination medicine containing sitagliptin and metformin. Type 2 diabetes is a health condition in which your cells don’t respond normally to insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates how your body utilizes sugar. This leads to increased blood sugar which can further lead to serious health conditions. This medicine works by increasing insulin production and restoring the natural response of the body to insulin. This not only controls your blood sugar levels but also reduces the risk of other health conditions associated with increased blood sugar. While taking this medicine it is essential to make certain lifestyle modifications such as consuming a healthy and balanced diet, staying active, quitting smoking, and regularly checking your blood sugar. This may help to manage your diabetes and improve your health. Before initiating the treatment with Janumet tablet inform your doctor if you are pregnant, planning a pregnancy, or breastfeeding and about all the medicines and supplements you take and all the conditions or diseases you suffer from.
