What To Do When After Eating Your Sugar Goes Down But Not Into The Range 120 You Need.
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm using tresiba in the morning based on my waking numbers. Then breakfast and 4 mg of glipermide at breakfast and dinner then 120 mg of starlix at dinner.

New Drug Treatments
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

My partner was diagnosed with diabetes a few years ago and was placed on metformin. He struggled to tolerate it as first but seems to be better managed with it now. We keep hearing of other people using newer drugs for their diabetes and obviously see all the adverts on TV. Does anyone have any feedback on these drugs and whether they feel better controlled on them than on metformin?

Hi everyone

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

Honestly not really I have never had issues with metformin just the fact I am on something new. Thanks for asking and all your knowledge you are sharing 😀

Actoplus Met
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

I take metformin 500mg, 4 a day and one Actos 45 mg once a day. Would this be a better way for me to take these medications? Taking an all in one tablet would be easier.

A DiabetesTeam Member

Metformin comes in an extended release tablet. I take 1000 mg once a day with the XR and it provides a good level layer of coverage to meet up with my other med that includes metformin XR

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

@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.
