hello..two years ago i worked and got a diabetic boss. she was 44 years old that time. we got close and everytime she went out of town she bring me with her and i saw how her sickness bothered her. she inject insulin in her lower part of abdomen everytime her sugar went high,(sorry for the word im not too familiar of the term for this sickness)and the greatest frustration she got from this sickness was she can never be a mother. so frustrating for a nice person like her cos i also know her husband and he is a nice person too. They went to all the doctors they think could help them but just the same answer she needs to do some extra care about the foods and drinks she is taking. i stop working cos i need to take care of my mother in our province but our communication never stop sharing everything and one say she called and while crying she said she was 1 month pregnant. the best news i got from her.But of course she needs to be more extra care for her and her baby.. now a 2 years old girl makes them a happy family and and my boss is 46 years old now but she told me that she is much stronger now than when she was 44. thank so much GOD u are wonderful.

hi jessicaryan, Congrats, to your Boss, her dream came true. Both my parents are diabetic now. My father has to use Insulin twice a day to control his blood sugar level. He has to travel a lot, and it really becomes very difficult for him to keep a proper check on his food habits and timings. I have seen in close proximity how a person suffers from this dreaded disease. But the good thing is it can be avoided. By leading a disciplined life and eating healthy food, regular exercise could help prevent Diabetes. I have vowed to keep a health regime for myself and have been in the gym for the past year or so. Hope the baby gives your Boss all the joy and happiness to forget the pain of Diabetes.

Your former boss is very fortunate that she was able to control her diabetes while pregnant and since she has had her baby. Diabetes is a very ugly disease that can have devastating consequences if left uncontrolled. My husband was diagnosed with type II diabetes 18 years before he took it seriously. By the time he decided to do anything to control it, he had been diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy (problems with controlling his legs, feet, and hands), diabetic neuralgia (a numbness and/or tingling of his hands and feet), chronic cognitive deficit (the inability to think rationally or logically) and even diabetic retinopathy (blindness caused by excess sugar in the blood for many years). When he was told that he had to take insulin injections every day for the rest of his life, he finally acknowledged that he had a problem. These problems can happen to any diabetic, but is more likely to happen to those who ignore their disease. Any time you have the opportunity to encourage your former boss, please do so. If people outside of her family do that, it may make more of an impression than if the encouragement came from within the family. It's more likely to be seen as objective when it comes from outsiders.

hello LadySam52.. i know how you feel right now cos i stayed in my former boss house for almost a month for some reason and she was not yet pregnant at that time and i saw how affected her family was specially her husband.. she almost lost him for another woman. she told me that she cant blame him for some reasons due of her illness. i was so sad at that time of her life i thought that what is happening was so unfair for a very nice woman that unfortunately got this illness not because of her fault but because of hereditary.. but i need to be strong cos i am the only person she can talk to.Thank you GOD! it is over..they are now a one happy family..so be strong my friend.. always. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND!

Unfortunately, diabetes is a horrible disease. My beau has been diabetic since he was in his early 20's. He will be 35 this year. I feel for him but did find out that he is lucky. He lost weight after he found out his now ex-wife was cheating on him. He did it out of spite. He worked out and ate nothing with carbs in it and slimmed down to 175lbs. he looked great! He has since gained a bunch of weight and we are trying to get him to work out again. Though I love him "fluffy", I know that he needs to get back down to size to save his health. Along with many diabetics there is the high blood pressure, hypertension, and then some. If he can lose the weight, he can get off all of the meds and feel better. I hope your friend stays healthy and is happy with her blessing from God! He does wonderful and powerful things!

hi peedielyn.. thanks so much to your response, i can say that one reason why his wife cheated on him as what my boss told me.. people with this illness specially men cos they are much more affected than women in this matter is the less of their capability to make their partners happy. hope you understand what i am up to..

I guess you boss has a Type II Diabetes which is also known as "acquired diabetes". Maybe she got it through her lifestyle and food habits. A little change of lifestyle and proper diet can help her alleviate the effects of her illness. The good news is that, today, due to man's quest and researches on how to combat such kind of disease, we now have plenty of medications and solutions for her. One of the breakthrough that can help her is, the recent discoveries that natural food supplements like Pycnogenol can help people suffering from diabetes. It can help her a lot.

I am feeling happy for your boss. Being Diabetic can not stop one from getting pregnant as far as my knowledge goes. They may have some other problem which god resolved with grce of Gd. Nice indeed. As regards Being Diabetic, many people have diabetics these days. It is a diorder that need to be managed. The way to manage it is to control diet and do regular exercise. Most diabetic persons try to do it in order to stay fit. Some YOG_ASANAS and PRANAYAMS ae very useful for controlling Diabetic. Hope she will be able to control her diabetease properly.

My mother is diabetic too however she does not inject insulin but she takes two medicines per day one in the morning and the other one in the evening, she has to take them everyday though, she is diabetic for nearly fifteen years now, what she takes care the most is the level of sugar in the blood.
