My mum has type 2 diabetes, with a longstanding decline in Kidney function, it has decreased from 40% to 20% over the past 10 years. The GP has asked us to stop for the 5mg dose of ramapril for the time being and retest in 2 weeks. Also blood glucose levels for many years on metformin, gliclizide and pioglitazone were in the region of 6.9-9.5. Now these are reducing and she no longer takes Gliclizide, Metformin stopped in recent weeks too. Her glucose levels now seem to be settling at about 4.8-5.5.
Has anyone else experienced this?
W are now worried as to prognosis as she is not a candidate for dialysis due to other health issues.
Any support or info gratefully appreciated.
