    Hello All,

    My father is T2 and his sugars have spiked recently and his leg is swollen. He also has Psoriasis.
    He is on insulin. Can anyone help how to reduce his swelling.

    I think he should contact a medical professional. Spiking sugars can mean infection.

    How high are the spikes? Consider a 111 call....
