What You Should Know About Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a condition in which:
- 1. Your pancreas does not make enough insulin.
- 2. The insulin that your body makes does not work as well as it should.
- 3. Your liver makes too much sugar. When sugar (glucose) builds up in the blood, over time it can lead to serious medical problems.
Lowering and controlling blood sugar may help prevent or delay complications of type 2 diabetes, such as:
- heart problems
- kidney problems
JANUVIA is not approved to treat the serious problems that may result from high blood sugar.
High blood sugar can be lowered with diet and exercise and with certain medicines, when necessary.
JANUVIA 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.
