Hi I'm looking for support. My husband is diabetic and over the last three years we've been through a lot. All stemming from diabetes He had an emergency heart bipass surgery. Then 2 years ago had bi-pas on his leg to try and save his leg but was unsuccessful and lost his leg. It's been a hard time. He doesn't accept things very well so it all falls on my shoulders I understand somewhat but on the other hand I need him to accept some of the things that are going as well. I'm very frustrated and would live to have someone to talk too. I'll try to be here for others as well so you can vent to me anytime too.

Don't know what to do. My boyfriend is type 1 diabetic. We are 8 weeks pregnant. And he still never checks his blood sugar. I just had to call and ambulance because he was having a low and it was going down fast. 1.6 (Canadian measurements) when I called. By the time the paramedics got here to check he was 0.8 I don't know what to do anymore other than tell him he needs to check it regularly and show me or I'm leaving.

my husband is a type one diabetic and they just changed his insulin. When I say they I mean the insurance company. So now when he gets low he gets mean and nasty. I know he doesn't mean it but it still hurts the things he says. I feel like I can't be mad at him for it because he can't remember. It does mean it hurts any less. It weights on me , it feels like a huge weight on my soul. I don't know what to do any more. I just would like to talk to someone who understands this. My friends and family will never understand

My daughter is 21 and was diagnosed with Type ! at the age of 9. It has been really hard for her to keep a job, due to her high sugars and ketones at times. She is now enrolled in College fulltime. Is she eligible for Medicare?

My husband has diabetes type 2. he has had it for several years. way before I me him. He has stopped smoking and drinking, which I am thankful. My problem is now he is on this diet where he only eats vegetables and fruits. I, on the other hand, weigh 98 lbs. and need to gain. He gets very upset when i try to eat foods to gain. how do i balance this out?
