Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your mother as you said is hypertensive and diabetic. She is on Glimepiride, Vildagliptin antidiabetics and Atorvastatin, Metoprolol as statin and antihypertensive. Her BP (blood pressure) is in under control as per her age and blood sugar is raised moderately. I would advise to start her on insulin the dose ll depending on her weight and blood sugar level.

If she is not fine with insulin I would advise to increase the dose of antidiabetic drugs after consulting your family physician. Her kidneys and eyes are fine. Please take care of her feet by doing a regular examination of feet. Increase her daily activity by daily walks and avoid lifts. Diet should be strict. Avoid non-vegetarian rice and fried foods.
