Januvia 50 (Sitagliptin 50mg) - 7 Tablets

Januvia 50mg (Sitagliptin) is a treatment for type-2 diabetes (non-insulin-dependent diabetes). It is prescribed in situation where blood sugar levels cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. Sitagliptin is a DPP-4 inhibitor (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor). Januvia improves insulin levels after meals and decreases the amount of sugar produced by the body. Januvia works primarily when blood sugar levels are high, so it is unlikely to cause hypoglycaemia as other diabetes medications can.
