Hello Tulika,Welcome to HCM,
You must get your dad to consult a Neurologist with a view to a EEG and a n MRI scan of the brain to get the diagnosis confirmed. As you know good control of the Diabetes and Hypertension is also necessary.One a diagnosis is established, treatment becomes necessary for a long time .
