    Ditto, ask the doc. If I was a doc, which I am not, I would say yes metformin 2x @1000mg, glyzambi 1x @ 25/5 and insulin, also lisinipril 25mg to protect your organs. I’d also recommend getting the libre sensor to monitor your glucose, you can scan on your phone anytime and don’t have to draw blood. Keep your eyes, organs and toes.. see an Endochronologist who specializes in the field and not your primary doc, don’t want to stay at a high glucose for too long in life because the vision or toes are a potential first to go

    Sure, if that is what your PCP prescribes

    Ask your DR.  You can't get metformin without a prescription.
