Hello,

Before commenting much on your case history, I would like to get a few more information from you which consist of whats your current sugar level and moreover are you trying to deliberately lose weight or not. Just with this history background if I would have been your treating physician, then after getting your sugar done I would have suggested you that you need to modify your dose of metformin and glipizide and along with that I would have also suggested you to stop doing any exercise and drink plenty of water and to follow a strict diabetic diet which includes no sugar, rice, and food rich in carbohydrates.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Medhavi Agarwal
