Welcome to Januvia.com!
JANUVIA (jah-NEW-vee-ah) is a once-daily prescription pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes.
JANUVIA should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or with diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine). If you have had pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), it is not known if you have a higher chance of getting it while taking JANUVIA.
This site has information about type 2 diabetes and how JANUVIA works to lower blood sugar. You will also find tools to track your progress and other resources to help you ask the questions that are important to you at your next doctor appointment.
Also, check out Steps to Balance™, a program designed for people with type 2 diabetes. Steps to Balance provides ongoing support that can help you manage your diabetes and make the small changes that can lead to a healthier lifestyle.
Talk to your doctor to see whether JANUVIA could be right for you.
