Hi there...diabetes is chronic disease which is present lifelong. You cannot stop the medications. Else the disease can exacerbate and lead to various life threatening complications. To reduce the medications, the disease will have to undercontrol for few months at least. This will require blood tests like fasting blood sugar, post prandial blood sugar and HbA1C. Do these tests and consult a general physician or diabetician specialist at any hospital. They will decide on whether to reduce to medications.
