What Did Your BG Do After Skipping A Dose Of Janumet 1000/50

What Did Your BG Do After Skipping A Dose Of Janumet 1000/50

I found that I skipped a dose of my Janumet and my BG went to 7.1 mmol the next morning instead of the normal reading of 5.5 mmol - Arise of 1.6 mmol. If you are on Janumet 1000/50 x 2 please share your BG numbers after a missed dose. I would like to determine how high it would go without medication. Could I reduce my medication and compensate with more diet and exercise?

What Has Been People’s Experience With The Use Of Glyburide?

What Has Been People’s Experience With The Use Of Glyburide?

I have taken Glyburide in the past and within an hour of taking it I would be hypoglycemic. As of the last several years, I have been on Janumet. As of late it didn’t seem to be lowering my blood sugar so I asked my doctor to be put on a low dose of Glyburide (1.25mg) in addition to my Janumet, since I knew it lowered my blood sugar. I now seem to have better control of my blood sugar. It did not cause me to get hypoglycemic but it did make my stomach… read more

Has Anyone Experienced Diarreha And Intense Gas Pain While Taking This?

I started taking @janumet xr approx 3 weeks ago. At first I had no problems at all. I take it every night at supper as instructed. Three nights ago I woke with severe gas pain and then was hit with diarrhea and nausea which lasted about an hour.. the next night, same thing. Is this normal? I expected to have problems right away but not three weeks in. Thanks in advance all!

What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C
Jauamet - gave me low blood sugar too low
Victoza - I loved it but ended in emergency for the pain I was experiencing.
Now I'm on Jardiance I'm not liking it
