Hi! My name is Zayn. And I have a question regarding my mom's condition and I'll really appreciate it if I can get some expert opinions. Thank you.

My mom has had type 2 diabetes from the past 3 three years. When she checks her blood sugar level (fasting) its normally around 130. 2 to 3 hours after she takes a meal her blood sugar level goes below 180. She takes a meal after every 4 hours.

The problem is during the day her blood sugar level keeps fluctuating, sometimes it becomes really low and at times it reaches up to 200 to 250. What is the cause for this?

*She also has thyroid imbalance.

Looking forward to some helpful comments.

Hello.

This is something your mom needs to discuss with her doctor. We are not doctors and do not know your mom's full medical history. Any number of conditions could be causing this, or she could need a change in her medication. She should schedule an appointment for as soon as possible.
