First, she must consult Diabetologist/Nutritionist- specialist in metabolic diseases. Doctor will make full clinical assessment and laboratory investigation to determine exactly diagnosis. She should not delay , because of her high blood glucose level ( normal range 65-110 mg/dL, ) and risk of complications ( neuropathy, vasculopathy, etc..). I would recommend avoid diet with carbohydrates, coffee, alcohol, fatty food. Daily monitoring of her blood glucose level and recording ( late to show this report to her Physician ). Regarding knee pain, possible she developed arthritis, as a diabetes complication or due to another factors, in such case you may apply locally anti-inflammatory creams ( diclofenac or Ibuprofen, ) , avoid long time walking and standing. If she refuse see the Doctor , try explain her that she need treatment to ameliorate symptoms ( pain ), explain that after treatment her blood sugar will come to normal range and she will have healthy painless normal life. Diabetes is a chronicle disease that require long term medical attention, diet, medication, to prevent complications. I believe she has health insurance that will cover treatment expenses.
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. If you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.

Welcome back,
I appreciate you want to try any methods to help your mother , this is great and theoretically is possible to manage blood glucose level by organized waves of many peoples who direct their thinks in one direction with one target, additionally , music, suggestion, psychotherapy , hypnoses, but still now no valuable scientific prove in this direction. Fasting blood glucose level ( minimum 8 hours no caloric intake ) for both male and female normal range <100 mg dl; after meal called random glucose level are very variable, depend amount of carbohydrates in the diet, this test, measurement has no diagnostic value. We use OGTT oral glucose tolerance test when loading 75 g of glucose dissolved in water and then measure glucose level ,normal value should be <140 mg/dl for both , male and female.
I wish you and your mother good luck and speedy recovery,
Hope this helps and I have answered your query. In such case you may accept the answer closing this session. But , if you have additional queries don’t hesitate to ask.
