Nice to see u in HCM.

Gilmulin 1mg and Metformin 500mg once in a day is very less dose for your present blood sugar and HBA1c. Please contact with another experienced physician in diabetes.

Its better to change to metformin 500mg three times in a day or sustained release preparation of metformin 1gm BD along with Glimi 2mg OD at morning.

All these medicines should be taken half hour prior to meal.

Its good for you that your all other reports are normal other than sugar and lipids.For you lipid profile you need atorvastatin 40mg or rosuvastatin 20mg.

Along with above medicines continue diet control and daily exercise.Avoid foods with high glycemic index.
Get urine examination done for microalbinuria for which ACE inhibitors will be needed.

Hope you have satisfied with the answer.For more queries do not hesitate to ask us.

Wish you good health.
