My father is 73 years old and has type 2 diabetes. He underwent GJ (gastro-jejunostomy i.e. gastric bypass surgery for a peptic/duodenal ulcer ) about 25 years ago. He feels completely washed out and totally weak every time he empties his bowels or a full bladder. He also suffers from hyper-salivation and noone has been able to identify the reason or provide relief. Any thoughts or help in dealing with this are highly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi @aster. I'm sorry to hear about your father. Here's some information about lifestyle and home remedies for type 2 diabetes that may be helpful: Does anyone else have thoughts or advice?

Thanks @margieshepard. My father is meticulous with lifestyle and condition management. These symptoms are in spite of taking all necessary measures. This is why we are baffled and concerned. Are there doctors on this forum that can be tagged to this question? Thank you.
