Well, for starters, she needs a really good endocrinologist. Why did they take her off the metformin? Did they put her on insulin? Where in Florida is she? If nearby, maybe I can recommend someone.

she is in Lady Lake florida and yes she has insulin shots they dont have mediform there to give her. when she
was in the villages hopital she had a uroligist and a kidndey dr there now at rehap all she has is the kidney dr
that goes there but they dont see here just the nurses there.

I don't live near there, but she needs to have an endocrinologist assigned to her!
