Hello there. I can understand your concern. Her sugars are not in control. Take her to a diabetologist. She may need some change in the medications. Also she needs to make some dietary changes and lifestyle changes. She should avoid foods with high glycemic index like rice, coconut etc. She should have a high protein and a high fiber diet. She should also have a salt restricted diet. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
