How does Janumet work?
In diabetic patients, the blood sugar level is usually high and causes symptoms like frequent urination, high levels of thirst and hunger followed by fatigue. Janumet contains two major ingredients namely sitagliptin and metformin. When janumet is taken, these ingredients react with the cells to control the sugar level. Metformin helps the liver cells to decrease the glucose production and also reacts with the intestinal cells to decrease the glucose absorption.
