Suggest treatment for insomnia and dizziness in a hypertensive person
Please help with further examinations.
Welcome and thank you for asking!
I have gone through your query.
Before giving you a proper treatment for your father i would recommend to attach me some more detailed examinations (i can see attached only the prescription of the doctor), because first :
-Only one value of the glycemia is not a good indicator to start or change the treatment and second:
- A person diagnosed with diabetes needs to do some more controls in order to see if diabetes has done any complication until now. So i would recommend to do:
-Full blood count
-Urea and creatine level estimation
-Urine examination and a 24 hour urine collection to check for proteinuria.
-Fundus occuli to check for retinopatia
-ECG, heart ultrasound and stress test.
-Ultrasound of the carotids arteries.
It will be a pleasure to give you further information regarding treatment and chronic complications of the diabetes after having the above results.
Continue with the treatment
I have gone carefully through the exams you send.
Actually there are some identified problems most of them probably caused by alcohol consumption.
I agree with treatment recommended, but i would suggest to be very careful because there is an altered renal function (both metformine and galvus should be given in reduced dose, XXXXXXX 50 mg galvus/day and 1000 mg of metformine) and a high GGT due to alcohol consumption. Except of the treatment for diabetes start a low protein diet because of the altered renal function.
I strongly recommend to check the other blood vessels (carotids, coronaries and peripheral arteries), because there are many factors that may have damaged them: diabetes, high lipids, alcohol consumption).
AN ophthalmologist for the evaluation of the eyes and a 24 hour urine collection would complete the check up for chronic complications of diabetes.
Regarding to high Kalium and low natrium level i also recommend to recheck them.
Continue monitoring the diabetes and blood pressure and keep in contact for the outcome with this treatment.
Feel free to ask more questions if you have still queries.
I would say that sudden withdrawal does not cause any problem rather than symptoms, the sudden correction of the glucose can also cause fatigue, tiredness, visual problems, but these are symptoms that to not last to long (max 2-3 weeks). Of course it is not easy and needs lots of will, but at this point it is very important to stop the risk factors(alcohol) for preventing further damages.
