I don't want to take Januvia so my doctor prescribed cholestyramine. Is anyone else taking this for diabetes II?
Cholestyramine can be prescribed to diabetes patient but more to deal with lowering high lipids. I don't think it'll work to control your blood sugars if you are a diabetic.
Cholestyramine helps reduce cholesterol (fatty acids) in the blood. High cholesterol is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis (clogged arteries).
Cholestyramine is used to lower high levels of cholesterol in the blood, especially low-density lipoprotein (LDL) ("bad" cholesterol).
Cholestyramine powder is also used to treat itching caused by a blockage in the bile ducts of the gallbladder.
