Metformin isn’t always effective or suitable for everyone, though. And sometimes people need to take different or additional treatments to help them control their blood sugar. Some of these other treatments, aside from DPP-4 inhibitors like Trajenta, include:
- Sulfonylureas: which work to increase your insulin secretion
- GLP-1 agonists: which typically come as injections
- SGLT-2 inhibitors: which allow more glucose to be excreted in your urine
- Pioglitazone: which helps your body to use insulin better.
Finding the right treatment(s) for you can take time. Sometimes you’ll need to cycle through a few different ones before you find treatments that work best for your health and your life.
