Brief Answer: change medicines Detailed Answer: Hi, In my opinion, yes, you need to increase or add new medication for this. There are many new oral and inject able medicines available. You should discuss with your physician about it. Besides that triglycerides are also slightly higher, you might need medicines for it. Continue diet control and exercise. I want that your fasting sugar level is in between 80- 120 and post meal is less than 180. Let me know if you need clarifications. Regards
