    • That’s to bad his doctor is no help. Maybe find another doctor? Diabetes isn’t something he should take light of. I’m speaking of the doctor of course. You should look into some diabetic classes so your husband can learn more about what to eat and not to eat and they also teach you how to check your feet and other things. Usually the doctor will tell you about such classes and give you the number and times when they are starting. But not sure your husbands doctor would even do that if he’s not even helping him.  Good luck my friend.

      I’m diabetic, but I’m not a very good adviser...lol, I just know I always check my foods when I go shopping and check for how much carbs it has. Usually 30 carbs or less. Cause the carbs turn into sugar as well. But like I said, check into some classes for him.

    • Yes find another doctor. He should monitor his glucose readings closely and watch his food intake being careful of his sugar intake. If on medications take them regularly and correctly, food wise eat a low carb, low sodium, low sugar diet try to get in the proper balance of the four food groups and drink plenty of water and add exercise if at all possible to keep healthy. Being a diabetic is a lifestyle change my hubby is one also and he does well.

    • He does eat too many breads/pasta. He is starting to get stabbing pains in his feet/toes.

    • Oh boy, that sounds like diabetic neuropathy and that is not good..believe it or not, but the drug Lyrica has been prescribed for the diabetic foot pain.  He needs to find a good doctor and quickly because if that is not monitored properly, it will lead to many complications.  

      My SIL’s husband is diabetic and does injections, and I know what it is like being around him when his levels change.

      Check with your health insurance and talk to them about making a change with a new doctor and ask lots of questions.

    • Thanks for replies. I have heard about Lyrics, his mom took that. It is so hard to get him to go to the Dr. And if his sugar goes up, he blames me for cooking things he shouldn’t have. He really isn’t even overweight , but this ran in his family.
