Good Evening all and thank you for reading this. My husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes back in November after a devastating weekend in the hospital when his blood sugar level was over 600. The doctors explained how serious this was and started him on insulin immediatly. He is pretty good with taking his meds and has changed his diet dramatically. He eats about 60 carbs per meal and stays away from sweets and high carb foods. I know that with his diet change that some weight loss is to be expected but so far he has lost over 40 pounds and it seems like its not stopping. He has quit smoking and gets moderate exercise. A few people have even commented on how sick he looks at times and I think about it alot. I am so worried for him. He complains that he is always tired and has even said that he feels weak. I dont know what to do. He is 6'2" and is 204 pounds right now. I know that doesnt sound bad but I am concerned about how fast he is losing weight. I dont think its healthy. I love my husband and I worry that things are going to get worse. Did anyone else have symptoms like this? I am serious when I say that his initial symptoms came out of no where and being that neither of us have ever been through this we dont know what to do. I cry alot and worry everyday about him. God bless to you all and thank you for letting me vent.
