I joined Diabetic Connect last summer but wasn’t sure how to use it. My husband was diagnosed last May with Diabetes II and very high level of sugar. I had been telling him to do a general check up for a long time and he just procrastinated for 2 years. So it was a shock when he was diagnosed. My first reaction was to read anything and everything I could find on the internet and join this community. Though at that time I didn’t find anything I could do here. Today I followed a link I got in the regular emails from the website about a recipe and somehow landed on this discussion forum. It seems like a lot of happy chitchat is going on. It seems like I might actively participate after all. Though did not see many caregivers so I feel a little like odd woman out.
My husband’s diabetes is pretty much in control now. His A1C has improved from 9.7 to 6.5. I am very proud of him. His father died just a week after his diagnosis so I think that was a wake up call to take care of himself.
Nice to be here with people who support each other
