I am suffering from Diabetic condition for last eight years. I was reasonably controlling the situation with Metformin 1000 mg 1 tab and Diamicron MR 60 mg 2 tabs / day until last year. Currently my HBA1C is not within the required range, it is increasing from around 7 to around 8.4 ( last year) Otherwise with the tablets my FBC is 120 -130 and my PP 2 hrs is around 160. Hence the doctor increased the dose to Galvus 1000/50 2 tabs and Diamicron MR 60 mg 2 tabs. still my 8.3 - 8.4 ( Current) is unchanged with good walking exercise ( 5000 steps/day) and diet control as well. Now I have consulted an Endocrinologist but he has increased the medicine doses heavily as follows: Actos 1, Saxagliptin 2.5 mg 2/day. Metformine XR 1000 mg - 2 / Day plue Diamicron MR 60 mg 2 tabs/day. I am frightened to take all the tablets after reading the side effects. Now I am taking all except Actos ( due to its warning side effects) . Is it safe to get into insulin rather than taking all this tablets to reduce my HBA1c adverse condition.
