Thank you for writing to us.
From the details provided, it seems to be a case of hypoglycemic coma
(due to very low blood sugars). Brain (cerebral cortex
) is very sensitive to hypoglycemia
and low blood sugar leads to severe damage to brain. If the low blood sugar level is prolonged, which happened in this case, the damage may be irreversible.
There is no specific treatment to improve the brain in hypoglycemic coma. However, supportive treatments like cognitive stimulation, music therapy, physiotherapy
, etc may be helpful. Chances of good brain recovery, however, is unlikely.
