Januvia is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. It is used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Controlling blood sugar helps to prevent heart disease, strokes, kidney disease, blindness, circulation problems, and sexual function problems. Januvia works by increasing levels of natural hormones called incretins. Incretins help to control blood sugar by increasing insulin release, especially after meals.
