    I hope that your grandma has been seen by a Doctor by now.  She has some critical issues that need immediate attention.  Her increased thirst could mean she is dehydrated, or does she have diabetes??

    Why is she unable to walk? Is this new or from injury? Why can't she chew?  She must not be getting proper

    nutrition if she isn't eating.  Short memory issues may be normal at age 65, but with everything else you mentioned, She needs to be evaluated by a Doctor as soon as possible.  She could have suffered a stroke.

    Please get her the medical treatment she needs.

      thnx faithInHim, 

      but I should tell u that she is not suffering from diabetes,we called a doctor which gave her some medicines but she hardly seems to recover,as far as her unable to walk is concerned she is not suffering from any injury,she just bends her feet when we try to get her on her feet, also lastly her urination rate has also increased.

    Hi Rahul84703,

    Sounds like your Grandmother may be having thyroid issues creating a decrease of thyroxin in her body. Thyroxin is responsible for proper metabolic function and protein synthesis. The memory loss could be due to lack of protein in the body. Protein is necessary for energy, strength and concentration.

    Consult a doctor about possibly prescribing "Levothyroxine".

    Perhaps Grandma should see a Dr. Sometimes excessive thirst can be diabetes.
