Hi My father have diabetes from more than 7 years. Recently he was told by someone that insulin injections are better than oral medicines due to large number of side effects. Currently he takes GEMINOR M2 FORTE twice a day before meal. What do you sugest? Should he switch to insulin injections?

There is nothing like that. If he is controlled well on tablets, he should continue the same unless he has other problems which prohibit the doctor from using oral medicines. Every person with diabetes is different and you shudnt depend on other persons advice.
