What causes shaky hands with diabetes and depression?
hi sir my father is a diabetes and chronic depression patient for last 8 yrs. he is on regular medicines. from last 2 months his hands are shaking without reason. the doctor is telling its not due to any of the depression medicines and told to see a neurologist. can u plz suggest me wt to do?
First of all, diabetes causes our body to loss important vitamins such as: vitamin B complex, besides uncontrolled blood sugar can cause a direct nerve damage, resulting in tremors and loss of balance.
So, he should regulate blood sugar and take some vitamin: Vitamin B complex twice per day after meals and one ampule vitamin B 12 every week can help with his case. Some anti-depressant drug such as: Fluoxetine 20 mg can cause tremors. The routine check of blood pressure is mandatory for him.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
