I've been diabetic since 2000 and have been controlling it by diet, but after 6 yrs it is not in control so i started metformin 500 x 2 daily. But after, in 2010 my sugar was staying too high so i was prescribed janumet which caused me to gain 5kgs in a year. Plus my feet hurt a lot and I'm feeling very weak. Please help me.

Sandy, many type 2 diabetics tend to have gained weight from the diabetes, then they will lose some once they start getting it under control, such as by using the medication.

However, if it's a severe weight loss, then you should seek medical attention to have it checked out.

Rozy, how have your blood sugar levels been recently?

Are you also continuing to watch what you eat?

Neville, I double checked on Medline Plus and it doesn't list anything about itching in the side effects. What it does list, however, is rash as a possible more serious side effect. If you are itching in your groin area, double check to make sure you aren't developing a rash. And I would recommend reporting this to your doctor as soon as you can just to rule out that you are having a bad reaction to this drug. I hope this helps. Be well!
