    Janumet for Diabetes mellitus type ii

    I have been taking Janumet for 3 years as a replacement for metformin and insulin. The blood counts were good. After about 2.5 years I got itching on the arms, then on the legs and the whole upper body. Due to the inevitable itching I had infected areas everywhere. The 3rd Dermatologist then decided for the diagnosis Neurodermatitis . So at age 64, I should have got eczema. (Incidentally, hay fever since the beginning of this year). The diagnosis left me no peace. That’s why I had my medication tested for compatibility in a lab. It was investigated LTT and BDT. As a result, the Janumet BDT (basophil degranulation test) value was found to be 1,189 pg / ml. The reference range is less than 200. That means type I sensitization. I stopped the drug immediately and have been taking metformin for a week now. I have the feeling that the itching is now subsiding.

    Side effects: Itching

    in connection with Capozide my partner suffers from nausea, dizziness and the worst thing is the itching. Today, Janumet’s internist has switched back to Diabetex 500 and will wait 3 weeks to see if the itching subsides.
