 >>> " Have never been as healthy as I am now so am reducing them a little at a time to see how it goes." In my opinion, that's a good idea. From what I have read on those drugs, the metformin has very real benefits(and some side effects which may hold the key to your current situation). From what I have read, Januvia is relatively new and I'm not sure why you are being prescribed this along with the metformin. I am no expert on this, but ... here's a PDF from consumer reports that compares different oral diabetes drugs and what is usually prescribed with what... :

The thyroid can only do so much. Ya know how we clean before the housekeeper shows up(well, if we had a housekeeper)? Oh jeez, the perfect analogy is just NOT coming to me at the present.

Cleanse, people, cleanse. Stop eating so much. Eat real food.

This post is not complete, I just wanted to throw some info out there.
