Like "It truly is possible to lead a healthy, active life with diabetes as long as you learn how to manage it. If you haven't been to diabetes education classes, ask your doctor for a referral or call the local hospital. You and your spouse can attend the classes together, and together learn what changes you want to implement in your daily life to control blood sugar. Also, ask your doctor for a referral to a registered dietitian who can help you figure out a healthy meal plan that takes into account diabetes as well as elevated cholesterol. ~Lynn @Glucerna"
