Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX, Hi! I am happy that your initial query about diet in diabetes is satisfied. As of ruxiglim I need to know the generic name as I could not find it on net. Regarding your tiredness, and disturbed sleep, kindly check your HbA1c, Serum Creatinine, urine microalbuminurea, lipid profile, TSH, FT4, B12, Vit D levels, Serum calcium, and serum albumin. Also see if you are developing daibetic neuropathy? With all these details you can revert back to me, I will be in a position to answer you. Regards!
