My brother-in-law, who is 63, was just put on insulin and oral meds. His BG readings are still 350+ and spike up to 500+ pretty often. The doc told him to take his pills at a certain time and his shot in the morning. He says he's been doing that and really trying to reduce his carb intake. Don't know if he has or not.
But the real kicker is, he has the mental capacity of about a 10 year old. He had polio when he was a child and oxygen deprivation so he's mentally limited, and he has ADD, I think. So how can we get this physically grown man to do what he needs to do? It's hard to think of him in terms of a child when he's a grumpy older man! lol Help!!!
