Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  I want to know if the patient is taking the medications properly or not. And why dont you keep a check of the sugar levels on a regular basis. Kindly consult a diabetologist or a MD consultant physician in person for further evaluation and management.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
