e, about diabetes in general, he has been getting better about checking his sugar, and trying to be the clumsy person he is, and constantly getting hurt! things I know dont heal as fast as they would if he were not diabetic..... I have a house full of food that Now I am realizing, is killing him! Like carbs, sugary snacks etc,,,,,,,,,,,, I need some knowledge on this desease, as I have been so wrapped up in my moms, that I have sorta neglected his, not thinking, that it is as bad as it could be, he also has a very dirty job, which is fine, but now I see the importance of keeping hygiene a MUST for diabetics, I am on my way to the drugstore, until he see's his doctor on Tuesday, to get some topical yeast infection creme that I use, so he doesnt itch off his privates, also new toothbrushes, and glucose tablets, when he watches what he eats, and takes his sugar, it seems to help, but I cant make him remember to take his meds, etc,,,,,,,,,, I set up the trays and just hope he wont forget,

You are a double duty caregiver like so many of us. This means you'll be seeking support from several areas. I would strongly suggest you both go to the diabetes Web site at http://www.diabetes.org/ and get information. Tell the doctor that you both need education. Diabetes is serious business and it will take two of you to manage it right. Good luck to both of you.

(From Singapore): You may control it thru diet and exercise. I am 42 years old when diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, at first, I was at a loss, do not know what or how to do or go about it. I did not get any support from my husband because he does not know how to take care of me. So I get info online and from friends and also my personal chinese physician and now my diabetes can be considered as under control. Right now, I just need some support from the agencies for exercise but they are damn expensive and I cannot afford.
