don't worry abt this. you have not mentioned your HbA1c level which will give you the average sgar , don't try to over correct your sugar which may produce hypoglycemia . the tab you are taking prevents the absorption of glucose at the stomach level ( volix ) so you will have this problem due to unabsorbed sugar and flatulence and stomach upset for some time which will be ok after some time .
so don't worry
good luck keep in touch
