Thank you for posting your query,

Apart from the information provided by you, I would like to know,

If you had any cardiac problem (heart related problem) other than hypertension,
Do provide E.C.G report if available.

Coming to your medication, you are on good medication, but your blood glucose levels tend to be a bit higher, so I also need a word on your diet so that I can come up with advice regarding medication ,dosage and diet.

Please do mention regarding the eye that is functioning well(the right eye),like recent visit to ophthalmologist to check for cataracts or retinal changes and regarding any treatments like laser etc. because it needs maximum care to avoid even the minute damage that generally occurs in diabetes.

Also please re-mention your height.

Waiting for the information from you.
Thank you.

Thanks for the information.
Yes, your medication, as well as its dosage is good.
Adjust your metformin to 0-1-1.your PPBS levels gets better.
Check your blood pressure regularly and consult your doctor if there is wide change in blood pressure, so that he may do the changes required in your medication.
Please take diet as planned by dietitian if possible.
Hope I answered your queries.
Feel free to contact me for further queries.
Thank you.
