Stiff Body, Blank Vision And Sudden Fall When Suffering From Diabetes?
my father had diabetes suddenly fell alone, his body stiff and his vision blank. There have been two incidents like this and after checking there was no indication of receipt. Thank you in advance
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints experienced by your father can occur due to various things, regardless of whether it is directly related to the history of diabetes he has or not. If related, then most likely the condition occurs because of hypoglycemia or blood sugar levels that are too low.
This can happen often when there are people with a history of diabetes treatment, taking the medication regularly but their appetite goes down so that the sugar level is already low because the person is not eating, lowered again with the routine medication he is taking. Therefore it is important for people with diabetes to not only routinely take medication, but also maintain their food intake.
If it is not related to diabetes, the possibilities that can occur are:
Heat stroke or heat stroke
Fluid deficiency or dehydration
Low blood pressure
Lack of red blood cells
However, to be able to find out it must be examined directly by experts. Therefore, we recommend that you take your father to the doctor who has been controlling diabetes and report the incident. Your father's doctor will assess whether or not the condition is related to his diabetes history and if not, your father may be referred to another specialist for appropriate treatment.
In the meantime, make sure that both the food intake and the medicine that has been provided for your father is consumed regularly. Avoid sweets, even if they are fruit or juice. Always accompany your father and don't leave him alone. So, hopefully answering your question.
