You are on reasonable medications.
Are the sugar readings you mentioned fasting or after food? What is your HBA1C level?

If you have type 2 diabetes for 25 yrs vildagliptin unlikely to be of much use.

Bp is reasonably controlled , but it is ideal if all readings are less than 140/80.

You are on atorvastatin for cholesterol. What is your latest lipid profile test result?

fine msa
good description of what you are taking .you have not mentioned your sugar level abt the timing ist fasting or post prandial . and better check your venous blood sugar that is not with glucometer which gives bit of inaccurate reading . do a HbA1c test if its elevated you may have to alter your tt. if normal you can continue this. and why do you have insugen -R . ist that your postlunch sugar is elevated. if so you can go for 50/50 insugen so that you can reduce one prick . and if you add a insulin sensitizer like metformin you will be benefited . for your BP if you can take a ACE or ARB inhibitor it will be more beneficial which can protect your kidney as well.
good luck keep in touch
