Thank you for the question.
Diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure) are both degenerative diseases that can make sufferers have blood sugar levels and blood pressure higher than normal. Both of these diseases can not be cured completely, but can be controlled through regular drug consumption, dietary adjustments, and lifestyle modifications to make it healthier.
Practically, most doctors will recommend people with diabetes and hypertension to undergo control to evaluate the disease and the treatment they undergo every 2 to 12 weeks. These recommendations can vary depending on the severity of the patient's condition, age, body posture, comorbidities, type of treatment undertaken, and many other factors.
Regarding your mother's condition, the daughter who has the right to determine what the right treatment is like, can she still continue with further treatment, whether the dosage needs to be increased or reduced, or whether she needs to change part or all of her treatment, is a doctor or internist who examines her thoroughly live. It's just that, considering currently being outbreaks of COVID-19, check directly to the hospital seems to be far more risky for your mother to contract the disease, especially considering the age and history of the disease that makes it more susceptible to more severe disease.
Therefore, we suggest, keep control of your mother's health to the doctor, only, there is no need to go directly to the hospital. As an alternative, you can accompany him to see the nearest doctor or practice clinic. Don't forget, keep on doing prevention efforts, such as by reminding him to wear a mask, diligently washing hands with soap, wearing clean clothes, bathing regularly, and keeping a distance from other people around him, especially those who are coughing, sneezing, runny nose, or fever .
Hope this helps ...
