My mom is a diabetic and she is on insulin and BP meds. Past three dingays she is running 102 temp at night and her hands have started to shiver uncontrollably at times, then calms down. Her speech is coherent. Fasting blood sugar is at 117 this am. She feels cold but is not shivering (like Malaria). What should we test her for?
Welcome at HCM I have gone through your query and being your physician I completely understand your health concerns. For how long she is suffering from it? Any other lymph node swelling in your body? She need to be investigated. there is need to look for the focus of infection. There is need to get the FBC, ESR , URINALYSIS , Chest X ray. she should be screened for the malaria and typhoid too. meet your physician. Meanwhile stay calm and use acetaminophen to relieve pain Get well soon Hope your query is adequately addressed if you still have any feel free to ask Regards Dr Saad Sultan
