With your numbers all over, even on meds you may be LADA (latent autoimmune diabetes in adults) also known as Type 1.5. If this is the case you will find the orals won't work after a while and you will become like Phishbowl, a Type 1. In the mean time, please do yourself and your doctor a favor and start keeping a log book with a food diary, meds taken and blood glucose numbers. Accurate charting will help your doctor make a quicker diagnosis, help you see the results of your foods consumed and cut to the chase much quicker.
Please remember that numbers over 150 more than two hours after a meal are doing permanent damage to your coronary arteries, blood vessels, kidneys and eyes as well as the small capillaries in your hands and feet. You can't feel this damage or really notice it while it's happening. Time to get those numbers down.
