Nephrologist 's  Response
Hi, Hypoglycemic episodes are very common in Diabetic patients on Insulin and dialysis. Hypoglycemia usually cause transient neurological problems. If neurological symptoms remain persistant, it is wise to take an opinion of neurologist after discussing with your treating nephrologist. God bless your father with good health, take care.
