My dad 55 yr old, has a history of chronic gout and rheumatoid arthritis, his recent HbA1c is 9.5, currently he just uses metformin and the last time I checked his sugar levels it was 225, please recommend a stronger tablet for blood sugar control, he also seems to have a recent flare up of diabetes for which he uses indomethacin as pain killer.
