Thanks Doctor. She has been taking Dialin tablets for almost 3years. She does blood test regularly..however never got it checked by a doctor, mainly coz she was scared...so she used to continue taking the same medicine..yep..self consultation! Her diet is controlled and she hardly ate any sweets,fruits ,oil riches foods. she regularly go for walking as well...however it appears her sugar level was at the range 200 for many years and by hieridetary she is close to obese.

Brief Answer: Daonil is what you mean I believe. Detailed Answer: dear sir, her present tab is not working good for her. she should ideally be on insulin. as her liver enzymes are going up. I would suggest see an endocrinologist once and get her treatment properly charted out. if she does not agree let me know I will give her the required prescription. meanwhile I will need her ECG as well and bold pressure values. regards!

Thanks Doctor. The tablet name is Daonil only..I did a typo. I took my mom to Dr's and her bp is 148/90 which was tad shocking as she used to be in her limit all this time. the doctor prescribed Istamet(1-0-1) and pioz 15mg (1-0-0)...and advised to recheck the bp during next visit before suggesting any prescription..I don't have the ECG yet..will upload once I get it done...should I leave this discussion open till then? Reg the liver enzymes.. should she take some other tab? looking forward for your valuable advise.
