So, I was diagnosed with LADA/Type 1 about 3 weeks ago. I got a CGM to wear for 2 weeks. My diabetes nurse send the graph to a doctor/endo (not quite sure, but I’m guessing she’s an Endo, since she works with diabetes and other hormonal stuff…). The doctor said my numbers were fine, and that I can start Januvia in three months. I told my nurse that I didn’t really feel good about just letting the disease go on without treatment, and she said we could wait one month, just to see if my gs changes.
These last 5 days, my fasting bg has been higher than usual. The overall numbers are higher. Not super high. Just higher. I also get what I think is reactive hypoglycemia some times, mostly after breakfast. I told my nurse and she said she would speak to the doctor and see if I could start Januvia right away, or if there’s anything else I can do.
What I’m wondering now is, are there any other Type 1s or LADAs out here who tried Januvia? I’ve read so much different about it. Some say it’s absolute ■■■■ that will only make everything worse, some say it didn’t have any effect at all, and some say it works okay.
I’m really not feeling good about Januvia as of now, and I’m kind of scared to start taking it.
