DEAR SIR/MADAM

THE PEAK FALL IN THE SUGAR LEVEL HAPPENS FROM 1/2 HOUR WHEN YOU DO GLUCOSE TOLERANCE TEST.

SO HERE IT IS NOT FALLING PROPERLY. PLEASE GET ONE FASTING AND POST PRANIDIAL TESTS DONE AND LOOK FOR THE RESULTS

I DONT THINK METFORMIN ALONE WILL BE ENOUGH

REVIEW.

THANKS.

Hello
your sugar level seems to be a bit high . It has to be below 180 at any point of time and below 120 in fasting . so you might have to adjust the dosage of the drugs or have add on another drug to bring the sugar under control . My advice is to check your Fasting sugar and after breakfast sugar again and if it is persistantly high you have to consult your diabetologist.

Take care
