John you did'nt say how old your son is but no matter how old he I know that sometimes it's not easy,I have two sons with diabetes one is 57 and the other one is 43 and sometime they act like 12 year olds
when it comes to going to the doctor or taking medicine,but I don't give up sometime Ieven get through to them. I wish your son well ,I'm sure with such a caring dad as you he will be just fine.God's richest blessing on you both.

Hi,John,thank you for all the helpful info you've been giving my bigest problem is staying away from the sweets,some of the sugar free stuff is okay,but what I would like to know is where I can find a good sugar free cheese cake recipe. I feel so deeply for all of us living with diabetes but I feel for the young children even more,but I ,feel hopeful that one day sooner than we think there's going to be a cure I pray for it all the time,I have had diabetes for more than forty years,I'm 74 and I know how blessed I am.Hope to hear from you soon. God bless.

Dog Collar,
Your husband seems to have been terribly misinformed. Even if he is taking insulin to cover all those carbs, he is running a huge risk. If he makes one mistake, he could find his blood sugar off the charts. Eating all those carbs is simply not healthy for anyone, let alone a diabetic.

Is he seeing a doctor regularly? What's his A1c?

You should go with him to a visit with a nutritionist or dietitian. Ask for help forming a healthy meal plan.

In answer to the question about nutrition facts.
I like to use the site http://www.nutritiondata.com to look up the nutritional information for each ingredient. Then you add them all up and divide by the number of servings to get the amount in one serving.

For example, if a recipe that makes 8 servings called for 1 cup of wheat flour. I could look up that there are 87g of carbs and 16g of protein in that cup (of course, you should include Fat, sodium, cholesterol, and other key nutrients as well). Then I would get the information for other ingredients. Let's say I calculated that there was a total of 96g of carbs and 24g of protein with all of the ingredients added up. Then I would divide the total for each nutrition category by the number of servings, in this example it's 8 servings. That would give me 12g of carbs and 3g of protein per serving.

I hope that's helpful.
