My father is 90, my mom is 86. I am sure my father has some dementia (never been diagnosed and no use trying, he hates doctors). But my mom is diabetic and only take oral meds to help, but recently they have been higher (mid 200's). I know she does eat some chips and a little ice cream each night, but I am wondering if the stress she deals with daily is creating her sugar levels to stay higher? The doctor has recently increased her Actos and her A1C (?) is a little high so he said if it doesn't start to come down within the next 3 months, she will either have to take Januvia or take night time shots (which she said she will never do). So how can she relieve this stress from my dad (he loses stuff, blames her, he fusses on and on over things until she just gets sick and tired of it all). She has basically no one to talk to except for me (all her close friends have passed on). And oh, my dad is definitely an extrovert (talker upon belief) and when she does go to say something he gets pissed off because he apparently wasn't done talking himself. I really don't think she needs the increase of meds BUT how does she get rid of the stress of dealing with dad?
