Thanks for your query.

The fasting sugars level should be target below 100mg/dl while on treatment. Also the blood pressure should be target below 130/80 mm Hg.

Gluconorm is Repaglinide, Since you are using single drug, a combination can be helpful involving drugs like Metformin or Rosiglitazone along with the Repaglinide will be good, in addition to above high sugars can be controlled with diet, exercise(as you are playing badminton, and weight reduction.

Consult with your treating physician for the change of the treatment and blood sugars should be checked before changing in the medications.

Certain Blood test can be done if not done earlier , the test are Hb1Ac , Blood cholesterol level.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
