Brief Answer:
You are having good control , need lifestyle changes

Detailed Answer:
Dear friend, Greetings from HCM. I understand your concern. If you can change your lifestyle with proper medications in time you will definitely be healthy.
First you need to get your lipid profile, thyroid profile, microalbuminuria checked. Also keep record of your fasting and post-prondial glucose record every day for a month in your diary with a well calibrated glucometer. Your medications are sufficient for time being if you are committed for lifestyle changes.
First stay away from all the fast / processed and fried food stuff. Divide your meal in to 4-5 parts per day whenever you feel hungry. With 2/3 snacks in between. That helps to keep the sugar levels constant throughout the day. Add more of fiber rich food stuffs like green leafy vegetables, raw fruits (not juices), take very less of carbohydrates (rice) avoid sugar completely. Take Millets in boiled form or the breads prepared out of it like ragi, bajra, sorghum, wheat etc., are very good source of micronutrients required for the action of insulin. Take more of protein rich food, like egg white, fish is good source of omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. Moreover, beetroot juice (inorganic nitrate), olive leaves, garlic, turmeric, tamarind also have proven benefits. Say no to oils and cholesterol rich food stuffs. Based on this, with the help of a dietician, you prepare your diet chart and strictly follow it.
Physical activity is very important, play games, walk at least half an hour to one hour a day. This not only helps you to burn calories, but also to relive your stress. Music is another way to relax too. Try and practice yoga, meditation and pranayama. Some aasanas are very easy to practice and also beneficial. Quit smoking (if) and reduce your alcohol intake.
If u can follow these (have to!!) you can definitely see difference yourself by the time you have your next blood investigation report in three months time
Wish you good health. Do feel free to ask more queries. Regarding your ED, Stop smoking and alcohol, be stress free take tab. zincovit dialy after dinner. you can try sildenafil too . THANK YOU
