He can have REAL cheese in moderation. Both dieticians told him to stay away from "processed" (fake) foods.
Yes he is going to have a hard time, but, he should have not been in denial about having diabetes for the LAST 5 YEARS......
A Dr. McGuiness didn't believe him when Mike told him the diabetes just pooped up. He called Dr Russell and found out he was diagnosed with diabetes 2009!!!!! I yelled at him for that too.
I think I am probably going to be yelling a LOT!
Going thru same thing with dh. Have to buy only what he can eat. Gs has frig and cabinet in his room for his snacks. Sharp cheese has less sugar. He needs the calcium but not the sugar in milk. Good luck. Everytime dh goes somewhere without me i find snack cake wrappers between car seats.
