Health Query

Doctor, I am having dm for 20+ years. Hypertension for same period. The combination of amlong 50/5 + monotrate 20+ clopidrogel + telmisartan 40 has controlled hypertension very well. However dm control is not satisfactory with metformin 1gram + glimepiride 4 mg with breakfast and galvus met 50/500 + glimepiride 4 mg at dinner. Of late fasting is 130+ and pp is around 240. I am 70 years old, walk for 60 minutes on treadmill 4 times a week. What change can I do to control the dm part please (my hb1ac is 7.5). Want to avoid insulin as far as possible.
