My mother-in lay who is 77, has been feeling extreme fullness in her lower abdomen, debilitating weakness shortly after eating, and continuing for about a hour. She's had a full battery of tests, and seen numerous specialist...nothing. In addition she will at times be in a state of moderate confusion with short term memory loss. We've done some home blood glucose tests (just to see) and her sugar levels range from 56 to 220 within the day. Eating balanced meals has helped stabilize her sugar levels but the feeling of fullness continues. It's to the point where she's almost sick, and unable to do anything. Any ideas, or suggestions? Thank You
