Sudden weakness, throat problems, rise in blood sugar, CT showed clot in brain, history of stroke. Alarming?

Hi, My father 75 : he has history of stroke on right side (this is week but working - sometimes feels weak like can not have much pressure on leg). Recently he has problem in his throat (voice is like soar throat ..) CT scan tells everything fine with throat. ENT specialist checked and suggested this is due to some clot in the part of brain which controls sound box system. But neurologist after CT scan says this due to swollen breathing artiry). 4 days ago we suddenly found he has high blood sugar found in blood and urine test. Urine test shows high pletelelts and blood traces. Dr. suggested this is due to high blood sugar and will be normal in few days. Today he is feeling a bit better. We are worried waht suddenly happened that causes all this. He never has sugar before.. Any idea, if this is alarm for something serious ? Thanks email :

Diabetes is a very common disease and incidence increases with advancing age. Patients suffering from it are at high risk for heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and many other diseases. Your father has already had stroke , hence i suggest that you get him treated for diabetes at the earliest. It also involves many life style changes. You should consult a physician or a diabetologist who can guide you correctly.
