My mother has been suffering from diabetes for three years. She is 61 years old and weighs 40 kg. She was on Gemer-1. Early morning around 5 AM, she often complains of excessive sweating and weakness. Sweating stops after taking tea, biscuit or sugar. She has stopped taking medication for the last 15 days. Due to personal loss, she has been undergoing stress and tension. Please suggest the required medical tests that she should undergo. Thank you.

Thank you doctor,
She underwent all tests except FBS. Following are the results of the tests: PPBS 317mg/dL, serum creatinine 0.67 mg/dL, SGOT 12.4 and SGPT 14.8. She is not on medication from last 15 days. What could be the reason for hypoglycemia attacks when she is not taking any medicine?
