thanks to everyone for accepting me , i really joined this website for my grandmother is a diabetic and she is 68 years old and we found out this past thursday her kidneys are only fuctioning 9 % and they want her to dialysis. Well i just recently moved in to take care of her and i wanted to know more about diabetes and understand it more and be able to cook for her and so her that being this bad of a diabetic doesnt mean you cant eat or drink anything. And also she is having and i am having a hard time understanding dialysis, she is not sure if she should or should not do dialysis, so if any of you can give me any info on any of this please send it to me even if it is from personal ecperience.
My grandmother is type 2 diabetic i believe, she is on the insullin shot , her dosage is pretty high i believe it is 60 or 70 units twice a day, she is not very phsyically active, she has had several sergeries on one of her legs that she broke to years ago and so since then she has not be really phsycally able to be active like she use to . Ever since she has found out that she is a diabetic she never started eating like she needed to and maintaing her blood sugar.
