U r on right track but requires monitoring.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.

Noted your concern.

You are looking on right track in terms of your medicines but it need to be justified with appropriate investigations.

In such scenario I would have continued your current medicines and would have advised following tests -
1) Blood glucose level Fasting & Postprandial.
2) HbA1c.
3) Lipid Profile.
4) Urine albumin creatinine ratio.
5) Fundoscopy to know any changes of diabetic retinopathy.
6) Renal Function Test.
7) Liver Function Test.

You can continue Tab Ursocol till your Liver enzymes become normal.
Should monitor Blood pressure regularly.

Along with all above I would like to recommend Statin (Lipid lowering medicine) its dose will depend upon your lipid profile.

Hope this helps you,

Regards,
Dr. Abhay Mali.
