My Dad has had Diabetes for 14 years and he still ate unhealthy after being diagnosed. Two laters he had a massive heart attack and needed by pass surgery. After the heart attack he started to eat healthier for a year then went back to unhealthy habits. This June, 12 years later he suffered a mini stroke and had to have two heart stents put in. My mom, sister and I have completely changed his diet as well as our own but he still gets angry when we mention about what he should order when we go to restaurants. We told him we want him to be around for our kids, my sister and I are in our 20s and my parents are in their 50s. He got angry and said he is going to eat what he wants. We are trying to be positive supporters but sometimes it seems like it's too much. Any suggestions. ??

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 son is 53 and has been diabetic since age 3. He live alone however he is my neighbor living in a house we purchased and rent to him. He has hypoglycemic unawareness and has had many visits to the hospital with very low blood sugars, yesterday 29 when ambulance arrived. He is so stubborn and will not see a specialist. His primary care physician has suggested it but he thinks he is doing fine. He is very fussy about taking care of himself, except for these incidence. I beg him to do something and he says there is nothing that he can do, he can't help what is happening. Due to poor vision he has to rely on us to take him anywhere out of his normal travel area. He actually had a low sugar while driving and an officer stopped him and called the ambulance, his blood sugar at 30. I need to know if anyone has an idea for me to convince him to see a specialist.
