Buy Janumet 50-1000mg Online
Janumet is the brand name for a prescription drug that contains metformin and sitagliptin.
It’s used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in people who have type 2 diabetes.
If you have type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t make or use the hormone insulin normally, so it can’t control the amount of sugar, or glucose, in the blood.
Metformin belongs to a drug class known as biguanides.
Biguanides lower blood-sugar levels in three ways: decreasing the glucose produced by your liver; slowing absorption of sugar in the digestive system; and increasing the amount of sugar that muscle cells absorb.

This combination medication is used with a proper diet and exercise program and possibly with other medications to control high blood sugar. It is used in patients with type 2 diabetes.
This product contains 2 medications. Sitagliptin works by increasing levels of natural substances called incretins. Incretins help to control blood sugar by increasing insulin release, especially after a meal. They also decrease the amount of sugar your liver makes. Metformin works by helping to restore your body’s proper response to the insulin you naturally produce. It also decreases the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb.
