Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  She is clearly overweight and also a diabetic. What is the treatment she is taking for diabetes? I hope her sugars are well in control. She should have a high protein and low carbohydrate diet. She needs to lose weight l. Ask her to work towards losing weight. Consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management.  Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
