Urine for ketones is must. Metformin is drug of choice along with dpp4 Inhibitors. If no ketoacidosis, add Glimipride and bolus insulin. Monitor blood sugar and adjust the doses accordingly

Start with OHA...And symptomatic for other symptoms ,and antibiotics you was started are enough for infection,but if not subside then start injectable mikacin 500mg bid for 5 days
