Suboptimal control: Your Diabetes is not controlled . Suggest do HbA1c and follow up with PCP . Lifestyle modification with exercise and diet will also help. Don’t forget to take 6 monthly B12 IMI , as you are on Metformin. Good luck.

Uncontrolled diabete: If optimal oral medication does not control your morning glucose ,with optimal lifestyle changes and a good dietician it might be time to change your medicines.This might include maximizing your doses ,another oral. agent,or adding insulin.A diabric nurse educator can assist the gp in this regard.
