    Hello. You talk of two different things, hot flushes and neuropathy. Are you saying she's still having hot flushes? If so it may be a hormonal problem and she will require the services of a gynecologist.

    I'm afraid it's likely to be neuropathy due to the effect of the diabetes on her nerves. She appears to be under proper management. How long has this been? Such symptoms usually take some time to get better. Is she seeing an endocrinologist?

    she started complaining of these since last 3weeks,many test was carried but no show, and as of these morning her sugar level was 4.7

    That's fine. She should see an endocrinologist in a teaching or general hospital. There are certain prescription medications that can be added to relieve her symptoms. These can't be prescribed in such a forum. I'm sure symptoms will get better progressively. The main thing is that her sugar is well controlled.
