Brief Answer:
The most probable further treatment would be Insulin.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir, gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Sir, the Fasting sugar level you have mentioned is too high. So your present medication dosage must be increased. You have mentioned the name as Triglynase. Sir please mention the name completely with dosage like Triglynase 2 or Triglynase 3, And how many times it is being taken in a day and when.

Also mention from when she is using this drug. Since how many days/ Months, these sugar levels are high. Is this first time or else since when. Since how long she is diabetic.

Most probable further treatment possible for the control would be insulin injections hereafter. For that you need to visit local diabetologist for prescribing the dosage of Insulin.

Thank you Sir.
