What is Januvia?
Januvia (Sitagliptin) is a prescription medication that is taken daily to help patients with Type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels. The medication works best when your blood sugar level is high by supporting your body’s natural ability to lower blood sugar levels. It is not effective at helping to normalize low blood sugar levels. While the aim is to lower you blood sugar level, it is also important to ensure that the levels do not get too low, which is referred to as hypoglycemia. Januvia (Sitagliptin) alone is not likely to cause hypoglycemia because it does not work well when blood sugar levels are low. If you take other medications to lower your blood sugar level, you are at higher risk of getting a blood sugar level that is too low.
