    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.

    Yes they can be brutal, 2 of mine crippled a small female. They went to freezer camp that day. Had to put the female down as well. She never even got to lay her first egg.

    Its not just the boys, I'm going to go off on a tangent because diabetes kills, it is a silent killer for many years, so when the person finally starts having medical issues crop up, their diabetes has already did irreperable damage to many organs. I watched my dad kill himself over a 20 year period. The last 10 years the medical problems started showing themselves. His last 5 years on earth were a living h*ll for him. I never want to see that happen to anyone else I love.

    But that's the real problem no real symptoms so unless you have lots of money for testing there's no real way to know. Thank God there is no history of that on either side of my family tree/stick/branch.

    That's why it is important to have your annual physical each year twist. They do the fasting blood work test for that & other things. Sounds to me like you might be a little behind on one of those. [​IMG] Take care of yourself, you have people that care.
