Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your mother needs some different medications, Glimepiride 3 mg before breakfast, Sitagliptin Metformin combination of 50/850 twice daily after meals. Decrease fats in her diet, avoid fast food. Increase physical activity if possible. Sugary things should be avoided altogether. Report me after one week.
