My father has type 2 diabetes. It is usually under 150 mg/dl after 2 hours of eating and fasting is also under 130 mg/dl.

For some time, he has this unusual hunger in which he says that he is hungry even after having a full meal ten minutes or half hour before. During this time when the gulcose is checked, it is usually in the range. Recently, he has been given duloxetine for slipping sensation in his feet which doctor thinks is due to Neuropathy.

He is on Sitagliptin 100 for diabetes, Zestoretic for BP, Rosuvastatin for Cholestrol and some other medications like Mecobalmin, etc.

What could be the reason for such problem?

Any opinions will be highly appreciated.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Diabetic neuropathy is inevitable and needs just supportive care and strict glycemic control. No worries.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
