Your mother has long history of diabetes.
Hyperglycemia is a very important problem is a patient with long standing diabetes.
This may be due to
1. Increased insulin resistance (More insulin may be required)
2. Treatment failure to Oral hypoglycemic drugs.
3. Complete pancreatic Beta cell destruction.

It is important the control hyperglycemia and keep the blood sugar under control to prevent complications like cerebrovascular accidents, heart attacks, renal and retinal problems.

Irritability is due to hyperglycemia.

You can contact Dr. XXXXXXX dhandhania at Orchid Medical Center at Ranchi for diabetological consultation for your mother.

Hope the answer helps you.
