lazuardy I do hope your father is under a good diabetes doctor as you do not sound like you know one thing about diabetes. dont fret most do not but you can learn easily. go to American Diabetes Assoc.com and read all the information you can on the subject as it will answer all your questions. he should be on pills or insulin you cannot treat diabetes with out medical help, this is the first thing to know he must be under a doctors continual care and have his a1c test done every three or four weeks.Also in your neighborhood,Ido not know where you live , there should be diabetes seminars where people with diabetes and their families can meet with a diabetes nurse educator and learn all the things you need to know. you all share your stories and support each other. call your local hospital and see if they have a diabetes support group there ,it will really give you so much needed help.Diabetes cannot be cured but you can learn how to control your blood glucose level by eating the right foods and exercising daily, and testing your blood sugar daily with a glucometer, how come your doctor has not given you this information: if he did not get one who knows diabetes thoroughly And get your dad treated with the right medications, pills and insulin can help him live a long and happy life but you must get to a good doctor for this help.
