There are numerous types of medicines for controlling Diabetes Mellitus (DM). You have to undergo further blood tests to see your kidney and liver functions. Only then we can decide upon the medication.
If you have not taken any medicines till now and are starting for the first time, you have to undergo complete screening.
That includes other than the tests you have already done,
1. Liver function tests.
2. Renal function tests.
3. ECG (Electrocardiography).
4. CBC (complete blood count).
5. HBA1C (glycated hemoglobin).
6. Serum electrolytes.
7. USG (Ultrasonography) abdomen and pelvis.
8. Eye tests ESPY retinal examination.
9. Urine routine examination and microalbumin test.
10. Arterial doppler of both legs (optional now, to see if the blood supply to your legs is reduced).
Only after doing these basic tests, we start medicines for DM.
Along with that, I advise proper diet and exercise.
Please do these tests and get back to me to decide upon the medicines scheme to control your blood sugar.
