I’ve been using metformin, glipizide and
Actos concurrently now for a few years, and at this point, between meds, diet and exercise I’m staying under tight control. My A1C has been under 6.0 consistently; for the past year and a half, anyway.
During treatment, my blood sugar became *very* problematic, and I ended up adding Lantus insulin on top of the oral meds. I no longer require insulin; it tends to promote weight gain in those that are predisposed to that, from what I understand.
