Dear i can understand your concern. in my opinion the diabetic coma is a kind of terminal complication in diabetes.as per your history even renal system is not working properly.So there will be electrolyte imbalance also.in young patients usually recover will be seen after 4-5 days.
in elderly pts usually recovery will be delayed, to predict her recovery i need to see her metabolic profile.
Presence of brain damage also should be take in to consideration.
kindly provide with above information so i can assist you better
