Not sure what should I do with my mom's situation
Hi :
I had no other option but to seeking some expert with my mom's situation. My mom she has high diabetics and sugar problem and Ulcer.She takes Insulin. Her problem is Once in a while her body temperature raises, Sugar goes down and she faints and stomach burns a lot. We have took her to ER in June, July, Aug and September. Doctors have done angiogram, androscopy, colonoscopy . Every time she goes they give her some medicine and either situation gets worse for few days or gets stable ( I.E. she was in ER 2 days ago ).They gave her some kind of antibiotics also. I would like to know should I seek any specific doctor or specialist . if so which one? I have lost trust about our local hospital. Should I switch her to different hospital . She lives in NY. Thanks

Yes she should be seeing an endocrinologist to help maintain her diabetes. They specialize in diabetes management and would be the best option for your mom. Please get her an appointment ASAP. I would suggest you get a copy of her records from whatever doctor she is seeing now plus the records from her ER visits to give to her new doctor. It is also important that she gets yearly diabetic eye exams either by a optometrist or an opthalmologist.
