a couple of weeks I added a discussion about living in denial, and made a decision to manage my diabetes. I appreciate the response and learned one very important rule about carbs. 58% of protein and 10% of fat convert to carb, and using this rule has made a huge difference in my numbers.
Now the problem.... I'm already tired of counting, weighing, calculating, and journaling. Fortunately my DH sees when I get discouraged and start to wing it, so he will get right in there with me to count, weigh, and calculate.
On my refrigerator I have posted a picture of a foot that has dry gangrene.
This is my reminder to take diabetes seriously.
Does anyone else have strategies they use to make managing diabetes easier? Or are we all in the same boat?
