Hi everyone, My mother was diagnosed of having diabetes melitus by doctor about a year ago, she got itch on thigh and loss weight then went to doctor and the doctor came with conclusion she got diabetes after he found out she got high glucose in her blood. The problem is all the doctor said is to prevent consuming sugar and he asked my mother to eat Glicab medicine. About 3 months ago, my mother re check again to the doctor, the doctor said that it got worse now and asked her to consume Glicab and Glucophage. I search the web to find out how to deal with this and I found out that the doctor should have tell my mother how to live with it and food diet related to her disease, exercise and many prohibition in food. I really angry with the doctor, he didn't tell the type of diabetes, not also tell my mother to exercise, to go into health food diet, all he said to my mom was to prevent sugar and eat that glicab and glucophage. I do understand this country doctor and hospital can't be trusted but they should give better attention to disease that laid between life and death like this. I've heard many people died of diabetes because of complication here and many lost their limb. I'd like to let you know that medical service here can't be trusted, there have been dozens of malpractice every month happen here, the poor refused by hospital because hospital afraid they won't be able to pay medical fee, baby *locked* inside hospital because his/her parent can't pay born fee and more, people dying inside hospital because they can't buy medicine prescribed by doctor. I'm not a spoiled man, I've search through search engine (Goo...,Bin.,etc) all I found is page full of article that didn't touch the *core* how to deal with it, I do understand that those websites only produced to be filled with ads and got impression and clicks. I also see this one AAA(I removed the link), first time I get into it, I think this is good site, but I'm wrong, the more I get into it, it resulted in page written with sponsored by, this tips is part of book (advertisement),etc. I also search BYC and only found 1 really related page located in https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=2892786 but that page also didn't give me valuable information. Here I asked your help, whoever know how to stay healthy with diabetes (since I heard diabetes is uncureable disease) to help me give my mother better life by sharing to me what food to avoid and what to eat, how to control the glucose better and how to live a good healthy life although my mom have diabetes and other information how to deal with it. pardon me if my language was bad and if I use word *unacceptable* in your culture. thank you very much in advance.
