Hello labroo, the values which you have mentioned for both FBS and PLBS are significantly high. Plain brisk walking which is the only thing possible in your case {as you are a known case of Osteoarthritis also} will be helpful. Apart from this considering your risk factors I would suggest you to start on with Insulin only after consulting your Diabetologist. Or you may add Alpha Glucosidase Inhibitors also with increases in Metformin dosage, which will help decrease the Post Prandial values. Hope this helps you. Regards
