Hi,
we are not your doctor, so we cannot know for sure what type of diabetes you have.

Type 1 diabetes is autoimmune and there is usually an absence of insulin and antibodies may be found.  Treatment is injected insulin and lifestyle.
Type 2 diabetes is often genetic and lifestyle related and at least early there is plenty of insulin, but it doesn't work very well.  Treatment is usually oral medications and lifestyle.

From your medication, it would appear that your diabetes is type 2.  Type 2 diabetes often responds very well to aggressive livestyle interventions such as exercise, low carb diet (restricting sugars, grains, fruits, starchy vegetables), and weight loss.  Medications may still be needed.

Your foot pain could possibly be related to neuropathy, which is damage to your nerves caused by high blood sugar.  Suggest you discuss this with your doctor.  It may be possible to reverse diabetic neuropathy if blood sugars can be brought down to normal range (about 80 - 120 would be optimal target).

hope this helps.
