Hello doctor,

I had been diagnosed as a person with diabetes before 10 years. Now I am taking Amaryl MV 2 bd dosage. Still, my rbs is around 250 to 270. What I need to do? Is there any possibility that I can avoid insulin therapy and by oral therapy only I can be treated? And now I think I am facing problems with neuropathy also. Pain in the palm and numbness in the feet even some sexual issues also. Please suggest to me what kind of treatment I should follow.
