Should I ask my doctor for another medication? I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 3 years ago. One year ago, I found out I have stage 4 chronic kidney disease. My concern is since I have a double-whammy for heart disease risk with my two chronic illnesses, I have read that Glipizide could further increase the chance of a heart event now that I can no longer take Metformin because of kidney disease. My A1C is 5.1 as of a month ago. My numbers are good.
