My mom age is 63 yrs, she is having sugar problem. Her fasting result is 160 ,after breakfast is 150 ,after lunch is 220 and after dinner is 260. She is already taking Glimisave m1 before breakfast, glucobay M50 before lunch and ppg. 3 before dinner. Want to go with oral medicine, what to do?

Stop glucobay and ppg. Make glimisave m1 twice a day.
Needs adjustment of medicines which can be easily done by a Physician.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given. From those it is clear that her blood glucose is not well controlled. Ideally in a well controlled diabetic Fasting Glucose should be < 100 mg, PP 160 to 180 mg & HbA1c% < 7.(considering the age of the patient). There is a need for improving the current treatment, to achieve better glucose control If you are looking for online consultation then come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with following details: apart from fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, dietary pattern extent of daily exercise, weight and height, then I will be able to give specific guidance and prescribe necessary drugs. In present communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs are allowed to be prescribed. Or else please consult your physician / diabetologist and upgrade the treatment. Thanks.
