Brief Answer:
Build up the dose, set your diet & exercise right.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX Thanks for being on HCM!

As per your records, you have high post meals and marginally high fasting. You need to take control of diet and plan exercise 45 minutes daily. If that is already in your schedule, it is better increase obimet 500mg to twice a day i.e. after breakfast and after dinner. Discuss with your treating doctor.

In addition check your blood sugars again after a week and let us know.
