The information at Drugs.com is not a substitute for medical advice. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist. The recommended dose of JANUVIA is 100 mg once daily. JANUVIA can be taken with or without food. Recommendations for Use in Renal Impairment For patients with an estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] greater than or equal to 45 mL/min/1.73 m2 to less than 90 mL/min/1.73 m2, no dosage adjustment for JANUVIA is required. For patients with moderate renal impairment (eGFR greater than or equal to 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 to less than 45 mL/min/1.73 m2), the dose of JANUVIA is 50 mg once daily.

    Hi Everyone, a pleasure to meet you all. I have been a diabetic for approx 7 years and have been diagnosed as type 2 diabetic by a previous Doctor, I am 63 years of age..
    I had a new doctor examine me yesterday who was surprised I was type 2 as I follow none of the ordinary rules governing this e.g. not overweight, I am physically fit, no family history etc. I am on insulin, having previously on Metformin as only this seems to control my blood sugars. She suggested I might be type 1 diabetic with delayed onset; that is a big delay! Has anyone come across this before ? Or any comments ?
    Thanks in advance

    @guylan and welcome to the forum.
    You may want to check out the "type 1.5/LADA" section of our forum - there are many notable members there who will be able to offer advice.
    http://www.diabetes.co.uk/forum/category/type-1-5-lada-diabetes.41/
    I can maybe ask one of the forum moderators to kindly move your post to the T1.5 section, considering it is feedback from there which will benefit you most. @himtoo, thoughts on shifting this?

    Diabetes as you will know is defined into several different groups and in general we diabetics fall into one or the other groups. There are however a few individuals who border on a particular group and may encroach into another group and in fact then be classified in more than one group.
    Some diabetics start off as being classified as Type 2 and over time the need for Insulin becomes apparant and they are then classified as Type 1.5 Diabetics or sometimes (possibly Miss-classified) as Type 1's.
    A 'Gad' blood test will generally show if the individual is Truely a Type 1 diabetic in the true sence, in that their pancreas has failed to produce insulin so I would suggest that you contact your new GP and ask exactly why you are now considered as being classified as a Type1 diabetic as this isn't something that any of us can truthfully answer without knowing your full medical history and what the recent blood test show.
    Please let us know what transpires - Best wishes - Lazybones.
