My husband is the diabetic, I am just the "caregiver" as you will. I try to help him keep it under control but he has so much going on. It is 477, it is 32, it is 110. He buys sugar free cookies or candy for his sweet tooth, but can't eat 2-3 has to eat the whole bag in a matter of hours. He got into the Christmas candy I got, snickers, M&M's. I know it is hard when you have a sweet tooth, but I can't get him to have a snack every 2 hours. He isn't hungry a lot anymore, so that doesn't help. He eats to many carbs. I tell him he doesn't care enough. Not about me, him, his health. He has so many ups and downs. He has stress, that doesn't help. One thing that is a problem is when he gets too tired, he gets very weary, starts slurring and can go to bed at 6:30 at night and sleep 12 hours. When he is over tired he is either angry or is emotional and crying. This roller coaster is hard!! Has anyone else ever heard/have the slurring?? I don't know how to get him to take better care of himself. He thinks he is, but if I say too much, I am nagging! Please help!
