Suggest treatment for severe dehydration due to Januvia
About Diabetes treatment:
Hello and thank you for asking!
If you pretend that the symptoms you reported are caused by Januvia, than you can try for a period of 2 weeks to take only metformine and stop taking Januvia.
Januvia can lower by 0.6-0.8 % the HbA1c level, so stopping it for 2 weeks will not affect the blood glucose so much.
Metformine has a greater impact in blood gluose, it can lower Hba1c 1,5-2%.
I do not think is Januvia the cause of dehydration, but if you want to be convinced you can stopp it for some days.
Hope the information will help.
Will be a pleasure to help you in the future.
