Diabetologist 's  Response
She would need a trial of other oral medicines in addition to what is taking. She might also need Insulin if drugs don't work. Her sugars should get back to acceptable limits by either way to avoid future complications. She should be absolutely fine with proper medications and strict sugar monitoring over a period of time.
