Dear Pastor Susan
In view of the fluctuating blood sugar results you are getting and the fact that your daughter feels so tired and has problems with her vision, it is vital that you have her assessed by a physician because she could be suffering from diabetes or hypoglycaemia, which are both conditions that require medical treatment and monitoring in a youngster. If she does suffer from diabetes or hypoglycaemia please consult a clinical dietitian. It is essential for anyone with diabetes or hypoglycaemia should consult a clinical dietitian, because the correct diet is one of the most important factors in treatment. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will take your daughter's condition, age and medications, into account when working out a diet for her, which will be based on foods with a low glycaemic index (GI). Click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI. Also click on ‘Food as Medicine' on the Diet Site and then on ‘Type 2 diabetes’. Until we know what she is suffering from, we cannot recommend any medications.
So have her assessed ASAP
