Brief Answer:
Janumet is sitagliptin plus metformin.

Detailed Answer:
Dear friend , greetings from HCM .

I understand your concern. Janumet is having one insulin sensitizer with metformin that is sitagliptin. But if your glucose levels are controlled with just Diabeta S R that is metformin alone it is not needed to take janumet

Kindly check your fasting , post prondial glucose and HbA1c also microalbuminuria. Later we can decide if you need janumet of just metformin is sufficient.

Please do remember that lifestyle changes that includes the dietary management and physical exercise is the key to mange sugar levels.
