target is LDL55

Thanks for writing us

Your mother has been given minimum doses of antidiabetic and antilipidic drugs.

For sugar you go repeat testing after one month, I think she needs higher doses of metformin or metformin + glimepiride combination.

For cholesterol , after 3 month repeat value and target is LDL55

if target is not achieved doses can be increased or can be changed to rosuvastatin10mg

If any other querry, will be happy to answer

Best wishes
