My father is a diabetes patient who lives in South Asia. He is looked after by my brother who is a physian (pathologist) there.
My father is currently having some issues with Neuropathy. Since I live in Canada, my brother asked me to consult with a physician
from North America as he thinks there may be advanced medicines to help my father. My brother sent me the case history of my father
and he also sent two questions. Please read them and any answer would be appreciated.
1. Severe weakness and parasthesia for 6 months.
2. Severe Gastric irritation for 6 month.
3. Burning sensation of whole body all day long during gastric exacerbation.
History of present illness:-

We are so sorry to hear about your father. Unfortunately, we cannot offer medical diagnoses or drug recommendations via the Internet. Only the doctor who is treating your father can do that. Before offering any medication suggestions we would need to physically examine your father and run appropriate tests – which is not something MedHelp offers. I don’t know where you father is in South Asia, but we suggest he try to see a doctor who is affiliated with a large teaching hospital in the country. We wish your family all the best and hope that your father finds the help he needs very soon.
