IS TRADJENTA RIGHT FOR YOU?

Your A1C test measures your average blood sugar control over 3 months. The results from your A1C test will show how well your blood sugar is currently controlled. If your A1C level continues to be too high, discuss setting a treatment goal with your doctor. TRADJENTA is an option that may be right for you if you need help lowering your A1C levels.

How TRADJENTA may help

TRADJENTA works to regulate blood sugar by stimulating your pancreas to produce more insulin, especially after meals, when sugar levels rise. It also stimulates your liver to produce less glucose. Managing your blood sugar can help lower your A1C number.
