This question of yours needs lots of details of the patient for correct answer from my side:

- Age of the patient: 58 years
- Time since diagnosis of diabetes:
- Presence of complications of diabetes: yes/ no, if yes, which ones
- Presence of high blood pressure and heart problem: yes/ no
- Presence of acid -peptic disease (getting heart burns regularly):
- Presence of any psychiatric disease: yes/ no, if yes, medications taken for that:
- Height and weight of the patient:
- Current treatment of diabetes taken by the patient:
- Physical activity patterns of the patient:

Once you provide me with these details, I shall inform you which medication will be best for you with minimum side effects.
