It would be very difficult and nearly not possible for ayurvedic medicines to keep diabetes and cardiovascular problems if your father under check.A proper control and management can be possible through allopathic meicines only.I would advise you to consult an endocrinologist as well as a cardiologist for proper evaluation and treatment.
