Dear sir I can understand your concern
it's a natural phenomenon in diabetes progression that oral medications tend to become less effective in due course of time
to prescribe medication I need to know some more information
her age , duration of diabetes ,her blood reports
I would like to know the resone why you are planning to change metformin.
in diabetes metformin is the best medication and usually doctors will prescribe it to all diabetes individuals except kidney failure patients
it keeps your weight under control and it's having lots more benefits that sugar control
kindly let me know above information to guide you better
