    Hi everyone,

    below is my prescription

    Gluconom PGL2 bfast-dinner
    Gibtulio 25 bfast
    Sorpot Am bfast

    Above was prescribed when my BS levels were 220/300(fasting/pp) HbAc1 8.9(few months back)
    BP 130/85

    post meds after 3 weeks (no diet or lifestyle change))
    72/112(fasting/pp) -though i have doubts on pp as the sample was taken 2 hours having bfast(which is comparatively lighter vis a vis lunch).
    HbAC1 7.9

    So my questions is are they metformin cause they seem to be working aggressive on my BS levels.
    post followup with results doc has reduced to PGL2 to PGL and has asked for follow up after a month tests.
    (He shaked my hand and said it was a wondee that from such high level were reduced to such an extant.He mentioned that my genes are strong

    Prior to them a year back when i was diagnoised the then a different doc had prescribed

    Glynase MF
    Eternex M(20/500)
    Pioglar 7.5
    Tellzy RS(40/10)
    I did not observe such drastic reduction in levels.

    So what are these meds.


    attaching my latest blood reports

    Gluconorm is Rapaglinide (if that is the first on your list).
    Gibtulio is Empagliflozin.

    I couldnt find the drug Sorpot in a search, perhaps check spelling.
