Brief Answer:
You may require additional anti diabetic drug or higher dosages of gycomet

Detailed Answer:
I share your concern
post prandial blood sugar 280 to 320 is still on higher side
I would advise you to get blood tested for HBA1c and upload me the reports
You may require additional drug like vildagliptin or a cruise group of drugs or higher doses of glycomet.

Apart from medicines I would advise you to follow these guidelines
Strict dietary control of 1800 Kcal.
Daily exercise and yoga
Avoid food with high glycemic index like potatoes, rice, bananas
Have small and frequent meals
Weight management
Hope this answers your question
Please feel free to ask for follow up
Best wishes

32 y/o female, no known major medical problems - depression, hay fever. Notice the past few times I've eaten pizza I get severe diarrhea, almost immediately. No nausea or vomiting, but stomach cramps, urgency and diarrhea. I wonder if I could be allergic to the wheat? I don't eat white flour or wheat very often and try to eat mostly low-glycemic/low-carb. Appreciate anything that could point me in the right direction. Thanks.
