Hello, really appreciate ur concern. Actually, diabetes management needs individual based approach ; which needs good coordination between doctor & patient. I would suggest show her to diabetologist or endocrinologist. There are many factors which can affect sugars , which should be found out. Take care

Hello, for fluctuations in her diabetes Medication needs to be adjusted, better done with an Endocrinologist. Pls continue diet & exercise. Depression or feeling low can be due to her diabetes or fluctuating TSH levels also. Both diabetes & thyroid when controlled well, she ll feel better. I would need her recent medications - like how many times Glycomet GP3 & Voglibose 0.3 she is taking & what dose of thyroid she is taking with recent TSH report to completely advise her, thanks. Or pls consult your Endocrinologist for the advise. Thanks.
