Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Your query is too short to understand.
Was this a home blood sugar test that was done? Is it fasting or after a meal?
I suppose the units are 229mg/dl. If so it is high and definitely needs a relook at the medications you are taking.

Let me know more details about your problem, when was metformin started etc? What are your exact questions to me?
