My husband was diagnosed in October 2006 as a type 2, at age 73, and I thought I was learning all about how to manage his Diabetes. When I was diagnosed this July as type 2, at age 63, I thought, well, I read alot and I know how to handle this. WRONG! He can eat things that if I just look at it my blood sugar sky rockets.
I know someone who says diabetics are like snow flakes, no two are alike. Thankfully we are both keeping good control for now. I go back to the endo mid november and will see If I am doing as well as I think. Hubby has other heart complications so he sees his doctor more often.
We just got Gretchen Becker's book, plus Diabetes for Dummies, and Dr. Bernsteins Diabetic Solutions so between reading, and also this great website, I'm hopeful we will be able to control the Diabetes and not the Diabetes controlling us.
Thanks for all the support, this website is the best.
