What is Sitagliptin/metformin?

Metformin and Sitagliptin combination is used to treat high blood sugar levels caused by type 2 diabetes. Normally, after you eat, your pancreas releases insulin to help your body store excess sugar for later use. This occurs during normal digestion of food. In type 2 diabetes, your body doesn't work properly to store the excess sugar and the sugar remains in your blood. Hence drugs are required.
