Increase your intake of Magnesium. It will relax your muscles. Also take CoQ10. Depletion by Metformin causes muscle aches and weakness

Janumet

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had problems with their throat and mouth while taking Janumet . I would get this ball of phlegm in my throat, and my teeth would ache and now sometimes my mouth will become very very dry and I would get a tin taste or a burning feeling in my mouth.

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

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

Gordon, Now that's using your head.

Just wondering if anyone has feedback about janumet XR. My last fasting was 7.2 A1C 6.6. My former physician had me on 2000 mg of metformin and not concerned.
The new physician concerned and put me on janumet XR. I have read about it and concerned .
Any feedback would be helpful

Had Anyone Had Success With Adding Januvia To Existing Metformin?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband was diagnosed several years ago. Had only been on Metformin which kept his numbers under control. Recently his A1C went up to 8.1 Dr has recommended adding 100mg of Januvia once a day. We have a 21 day sample supply. Has anyone had success with adding this drug?

@A DiabetesTeam Member, it depends on what insurance you have. I’m with Ambetter, and my twice daily dose of Janumet, which is Januvia/Metformin combo, costs me $30 a month - my generics are $0.

What Is Metformin And How Does It Work?

A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

Metformin is the most common diabetes medication on the planet.

Some hate the stuff, others question it, some can't tolerate it, most of the rest simply take it and get on with their business.
