I am 56 years old. My height is 167 cm and weight 100 kg. 11 years ago, I was diagnosed to have diabetes. The maximum score of my sugar was around 280 occasionally due to uncontrolled eating even with pills (DPP 4 and Metformin). Sometimes, I have overeating problem. My HbA1c is 6.5. My cardiac MRI showed inflammatory cardiomyopathy borderline with associated VPC. It is under control by Metoprolol 50 mg twice daily. Now, I would like to change my medicines. But, sulfonylurea medicines can increase weight. Acarbose and Voglibose do not work properly. The new medicine offered by my doctor was sodium glucose transporter, but I afraid of kidney damage. Another offer was a slow release Insulin injection, but this can also increase weight. Kindly guide me.
