HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, it is not possible to say anything about the prognosis from the what the history is given here but such case need complete clinical examination and case study to know about the prognosis but you can ask this to her doctor who is taking care of this case, (If this is the diabetic coma then prognosis is good without cerebral damage ) hope this information helps.
I find this answer helpful
