Mom (88) has dementia and diabetes 2. Sugar drops to 2 and 3. She is to weak to lift herself up to go to toilet. Has fully control of bladder but constipated. The carers give her Ensure 2 times a day. Any suggestions?

The same thing happened to my mom when she broke her hip in December 2014. She was down to 88 lbs. I insisted her primary caregiver write a script for her to take MAGAISE (I'm probably not spelling it right) - it's pronounced MAY GAZE.... and oh my God what a difference. She eats great now and is up to 102! PLEASE look into this because I was having the exact same problem with my mom wasting away with no appetite, and now...? We can hardly pass a restaurant in the car without her wanting to stop!

Was this a sudden loss of weight? Is mom in the early or late stages of dementia? Have you spoke to her doctors?
