Like "I didn't know I had diabetes until I was 55 years old. My whole family has a weight problem. If I can control my weight, I can throw my medication away. It works. I just came out of the hospital (six months ago), and lost twenty pounds because it is impossible to cheat after six p.m. The most they will give you is a glass of fruit juice (great being a diabetic), and a graham cracker package. Fifty five before I knew. My whole (italian) family likes to eat pasta..........Can you blame me?????"
