When An old man got sick

Just got home from the hospital. We rushed my father in law to the hospital few days ago due to gastroenteritis but they discovered he has diabetis mellitus type 1. He has to inject insullin everyday. The doctor advised him to watch what he eat but the problem is he can't restrain himself from eating too much especially rice. He gets annoyed whenever we tell him to lessen his food.

Hope that he is better normal for Asian to love their white rice. One way is to ask him to split his meals to various portions and eat at regular intervals, it should help his brain to think that he is full.

Are you sure that he has type 1 diabetes? Old people usually have type 2.

@jcvee2009 I am sorry for him. Here the patient don't change the type, it is still type 2 who needs insulin shots.

I have a brother that has diabetes too. Very obstinate when we say to avoid certain foods.

We will need them to avoid sugars and carbs so that they will have a better quality of living. Having to said that just occasional treat is actually fine

Some people are really stubborn and they won't quit until the they're at their worst condition. They don't care about how others would suffer and not only them.
