i have been recently rememering when i was growing up that i had 3 grandparets that had diabetes and each of them did somthing different. my grandmother on my dads side ate what ever she wanted and didn't ever count the carbs. my grandfater on my dads side just had to make sure that he ate at certain time and it had to be done right on time. and my grand father on my moms side he took insulin and had to count carbs but wasn't as good at it and always carried around life savers candy. and now my turn i am on insulin and i count my carbs and i make sure that i do everything in my power to keep my numbers in check i call my doctor every week to make wure that i am on the right path and see if there are any changes to be made. i have been in the hospitol 4 times in the last 4 years for differant things and have learned alot about what diabetes is and what all you can do to help yourself. its too bad that they didn't do this when my grandparents where diagnosed there are times when i think that if they had they might still be here today. just thought i would share have a great day.
