Hi

Your current glucoe levels are too high. Both medications are good at lowering glucose levels, but if you are on both at the moment with such high levels, then they are not strong enough to lower your levels, and therefore you will need your medication adjusted. You will need to see your doctor to have the doses adjusted or have further medication added
