I am married to a wonderful person who has had diabetes for about 5 years. Though he started out by making real changes to his lifestyle, he has only maintained some of those changes— the main one being that he is exercising a lot more than before, which is great. However, he is not being as careful with his diet as he needs to be. While he is not currently taking any meds to control his diabetes, and doesn't want to, his doctor has asked him to consider doing so. I think it's terrific that he was able to control his symptoms through diet and exercise before, but he's having a harder time doing so now. (It's hard, i know.) I DON'T want to nag him, but I am worried about him. When I see him eat multiple servings of desserts, I feel like he's giving up. Any suggestions?
