your question is confusing, it is not clear,what you want to say.
you should know that what a random is . if you take blood at any time,irrespective of meal, it is called random if you want to know blood sugar level ,every month, you take,either fasting or after two hours after meal.

hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
I didnt get your question are you saying why random blood glucose level is done or any change in the values of your father? The random blood glucose level means checking the blood glucose levels at presenting to the lab. Unlike fasting level or after food levels.

Hi and welcome to healthcare magic!! From what i have understood you want to know why different levels come each time you check your father's blood sugar levels. It depends on the time when you take the sample and also time of medications. You can maintain a chart of fasting blood sugar levels for a month taken at intervals of 2-3 days and at the end see the variations and consult a doctor.

Take care
