I am an EMT so I am aware of diabetic emergencies and watching over him w meds (this should be fun). He has been per-diabetic for many, many years, just never followed the guidelines. He moved in a year ago and I have been trying to feed him appropriate but he buys the big tub of ice cream, eats the half bag of Doritos in one sitting (my go to snack that I had put away, he ate the other half the other day and hid the bag like I couldn't hear him eating it). He sneaks out for breakfast and lunch (I know he has to get out). So now it is up to me to be the gate keeper. He never listened to mom. I advised exercise, eating moderation all of it. I am sure he wont listen. At least it is a good excuse for me to eat better (we eat rather healthy, I do all the cooking). He thinks the pill will be the fix it.
Its enough I have a room mate now I have to be his personal cook (I really hate that). I remind him all the time to eat right. He won't listen. He will be away for a week back home and he will eat like a sailor on leave. His excuse is the whole family before him were diabetic..... yeah they all ate like crap because they did not know better.............. I have more cookbooks than most and am adept at cooking. the challenge will be to get him to eat regulatory. He needs to lose a good 80 to 100, I can stand to lose 40 (to get to my ideal weight). So it might not be bad for me.
