Dear madam i can understand your concern
in my opinion your dad might be suffering from some kind of infection,It might be Filaria or other bacterial infection
the reason for fever is infection.
i suggest you to see a doctor and consider using antibiotics
during fever insulin dose should be readjusted because in infection the insulin requirements will increase.

My husband has Type 2 diabetes and takes Glucophage. He has always had some difficulty going to the toilet, but since being diagnosed 12 months ago with diabetes the problem has become much worse. He sometimes goes days and days without going to the toilet and, of course, this becomes uncomfortable for him. Our Doctor has prescribed Fybogel twice daily, regrettably with little effect. He also takes Maximum Strength Senokot, again with little effect. He has a very healthy diet, (being diabetic), muesli for breakfast, lots of fresh vegetables and fresh fruit and I always make sure he drinks plenty of fluids. Have you any suggestions that may help. Many thanks.

How does Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo effect blood viscosity? I m insulin resistant, and I keep track of my blood sugar levels periodically after meals and fasting just to make sure everything is copacetic. Last night, when I pricked my finger, I noticed my blood was very thin. I couldn t get a well formed drop. It was runny like water. I would like to know how the birth control could contribute to this effect. It s odd to me because birth control pills are associated with clotting.... Appreciate your insight!

Hi, I was taking Cetapin XR 500 for about 4 years. In November, 2013, I was found to have low PP sugar levels (66) alongwith excessive thirst and urination and so was advised to discontinue the medicine. I underwent Osmolality (serum and Urine) tests also among some other tests. Ever since I stopped the medicine, my weight has been constantly increasing. It was already at 77-78 kg in November, 2013 and presently at 88 kg. GTT and Insulin (Fasting and 1 hr.) are within referral range, but Insulin PP was slight more than the upper range (5). What should I do? Jaya
