My mother is SLE patient since 92 and also diabetic heart patient since 2011. Recently she was diagnosed with pneumonia , at the moment her lungs are clear. She was brought in hospital in state of emergency. During her stay her creatinine became 3.1 and she was on insulin. After taking med dytor and nephrosave her creatinine is 1.6. Now should she continue with dytor and nephrosave? And also should she continue with insulin or get back to oral med glypizide 1000mg and diamcron 120mg?

I cannot recommend medical treatment without performing a complete history and physical examination.  I suggest that you follow the advice of the doctors who are caring for your mother.  They will have the complete information about her current health and can make proper recommendations about the best medication to treat your mother.
