I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1999.
From 1999 to 2009, I've been taking Metformin.
From 2009 to 2010, I used Gliclazide and then Glibenclamide，which cause hypoglycemia.
In Dec 2010, there were signs of retinal hemorrhage. and in my blood examination, HbA1c was 10.2 (too high). 8-hour urine protein was 83.8 (normal should be around 20)
So From Dec 2010, my doctor suggested me to use Insulin. 3 times rapid-acting insulin during the day, and one shot of long-acting insulin before bed.
Due to my working schedule, it is not convenient to take insulin in the middle of the day. My question is, is it OK to switch back to other medications? Which medication would be good for me in my case? Any advice? Thank you very much!
