I currently do not take medication, controling through diet and exercise.
I went to my gyno last week for an annual check up and was told that I should ask to be put on Metformim. She said that when in the early stages of this disease it is very effective in keeping the BG down, it has other beneficial effects to health as well.
I was studying Januvia and thought perhaps if I was to go on any medication it would be a good choice as it only works if your BG rises or goes to low.
Both medications boast no weight gain which I am concerned about. I have lost 55 lbs from my all time high, 20 of those lbs most recently.
I see my regular Dr in Sept and plan on discussing this with her.
Can anyone enlighten me on either of these medications? One better then the other? Should they be taken early on?
