What causes narcolepsy, anorexia and excessive thirst in a diabetic patient?
I would recommend as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
Regarding your concern, I would explain that his fasting blood glucose values are really low and he can get into coma if this situation persists or even progresses (hypoglycemic coma). His blood pressure values are low too.
I recommend consulting with his attending physician as soon as possible and performing some tests:
- fasting glucose and HbA1C
- blood electrolytes (for possible electrolyte imbalance)
- thyroid hormone levels (for possible thyroid dysfunction)
- cortisol plasma levels (to exclude possible adrenal gland dysfunction)
- kidney and liver function tests.
You should discuss with his doctor on the possibility of making some changes to his actual therapy (reduce the anti hypertensive drugs doses and diabetes therapy doses).
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
