Hello the diabetic medicine and controls diet. Some time lead to it. The sugar level fall below the desire level and body goes to coma. So it is advice that patient taking diabetic medicine should have sugar and salt hand. If he feels weakness or dizziness he should take two spoon of sugar and pinch of salt in glass of water immediately and go for blood test to see the level of sugar. Thanks.
If you feel hypoglycemia than to have 4 teaspoon sugar immediately with water. Reduced your medicine dose. Increase your small frequent meal in every 2 hour. When you go to bed than to have 1glass tonnes milk with 2 to 4 marie or salty biscuits this will help or prevent coma at night.
