As a diabetes advocate you may get sick of reading my posts but I v volunteer to tgy to help new ones who feel scared as there is no need to be now., Modern medicine has made lt a cinch tol live happy and healthy with diabetes.We eat just the way good nutritionists say we all should' eat. heavy on veggies and fr uits, some lean meat like chicken breast, fish and very lean beef, We learn which carbs are simple and shoot up ones blood sugar and which are complex and good for us to control our blood sugar. Taike advantage of free seminars given by local hospitals and nurse diabetes reducers. you will learn the latest facts and will meet others who are also new diabetics and thus make friends. Exercise and stay slm and stay away from stress .be happy; follow your doctors orders and know you can live a long good happy life. One original post and graphic by P Hatley copyrighted 2017

You are right, Patsie. Diabetes is not a terrible word if you learn to control it.

Absolutely. Diabetes care has come on in leaps and bounds. I remember the days of really complicated insulin therapy the different strengths, the different forms of insulin, human, beef, pork etc different strengths 20, 40 80 strengths. The initial change from these insulin to synthetic insulin and how people bombed out on them. The number of people who lapsed into comas due to them being prescribed the wrong strengths etc etc. It is so much simpler to manage these days!

@Hatley Haha do you remember the tablet tests for urine! Boy that was something else. Now the strips are so much easier. I do hope one day they find a cure for diabetes mellitus.

Diabetes is very common these days, every house member have this problem. Eating right is the only thing we can do to void or control it , life style matters.
