From this study (2 years ago):
Scott on Apr, 18, 2012:
I was prescribed Janumet (500mg) after a single A1C result of 7.1%. Two tables per day. This resulted in subsequent A1C readings of 5.7-5.8. However, after 6 months my Total Cholesterol had jumped from 179 to 221, and my LDL (bad) Cholesterol rose from 116 to 157. My doctor wanted to place me on cholesterol control medication, which I declined. I immediately stopped taking the Janumet because it was the only change that I'd made as a concession to my alleged diabetes diagnosis. After 3 months of not taking Janumet, my Total Cholesterol has dropped to 193 (back in healthy range <200) and my LDL Cholesterol has dropped to 124. So, YES, Janumet can quickly cause an unhealthy rise in LDL Cholesterol, which may return to normal without intervention (as in my case) by ceasing to take Janumet. Obviously, you should consult with your physician regarding any change in your medications. Simply reducing the dosage might result in eliminating this side-effect, while still providing the desired benefits of Janumet. My A1C results were stable at 5.7-5.8 while taking the medication, so does what it's supposed to do quite well.
