INSOMNIA RELATED TO DIABETES ? Hi doctor., I am asking quetion on behalf of my aunt. My aunt who is 56 years old. Her BP is 120/70 and weight 58 kg. She is diabetic for the past 5 years and hypertensive for the last 10 years.. For about 4-5 years now, she is suffering from insomnia which has resulted in uncontrolled high blood sugar level. She does walking and takes a good diet, but lack of sleep has resulted in blood sugar level not being controlled. Her sugar levels (most recent) were FBS-148 mg/dl; Urine-NIL PPBS-289mg/dl; Urine-2.0%. She is on the following medicines currently: Prechek-2mg 1-0-1 (BF), Glyciphage 500 1-1-1 (AF), Zevit 0-0-1, Losacar-H 1-0-0, Inderal 40mg 1-0-1, Stresnil 0.5 mg 0-0-1. Her insomnia started around the time when her son passed away at the age of 40 years (leaving behind his wife and 2 young children aged 3 & 1). At around the same time her blood sugar was found to be more than 500mg/dl.As she had menopause at the same time, the doctors said that high blood sugar may be due to menopause. An ultrasound scan done at that time was normal. The sugar was well under control for a while but has been uncontrollable for the past 1 year. She cannot sleep at night.She has tried lots of alternatives like exercises, yoga, etc but she has lost her sleep and her blood sugar is not under control. I request you to kindly help her in getting relieved.
