Currently for diabetes she is on Galvus met twice a day and glyciphage 500 mg once in a day. She is taking niftras 100 mg for 10 days now, the current report says 1-2 epithelial cells/HPF and 1-2 inflammatory cells/HPF. No growth Please advise if we can continue the tablets and for how long can she take niftas 100 mg. Thank you.
