Cytagliptin drug information

Medication Information: The hormone insulin is naturally synthesized in the body. This hormone is made in the pancreas. Insulin is a hormone that controls the level of blood sugar in the body. If the body can not produce enough insulin, it can lead to a condition called diabetes mellitus.

People with diabetes need treatment to control their blood sugar levels. This is because proper blood sugar control reduces the future consequences of diabetes. Sitagaliptin increases blood insulin levels by controlling blood sugar in the body. It also lowers the hormone glucagon. Glucagon causes the liver to produce more sugar. As a result, glucose levels drop as glucagon levels fall.

Sitagaliptin, brand Janumet, is made in combination with metformin for diabetics.
