As per your description,her plasma glucose levels are high.

She should take glycomet twice a day.And increase Pioglar 7.5 mg to 15 mg.

Also maintain a good hydration.

If her blood sugar levels persistently high then see her to doctor and kidney function test,HbA1c should be done.

Hope this helps.
