I would really suggest, if you are religious, get him a minister, if not tell him to bay for a professional counseler. If he were my spouse, I would not be kind at all. I would give him an five days to completes certain goals or else.
Make me chuckle: Or else what? LOL!!!
Despite we must be cautious about statistics, studies of families, twins and Native Americans has revealed a link to genetics. However many factors can cause diabetes. Some farm chemicals, pancreatis, and even prescription drugs have been linked to diabetes. Also a strong correlation exists between the increased production of high fructose corn syrup and the increased prevalence of diabetes. You don't need a study. You only need to look at when high fructose corn syrup began production and track the increases of diabetic cases. High fructose corn syrup is so rich, that it demands huge increases of insulin. So it does not take a genius to reason that those with genetics that can not keep up with the increased concentrations of sugar will have the potential to become diabetic. I guarantee no doctor cares about the food supply chain issue. The more sick people, the greater the profits.
I understand what you are saying. However, his father and grandfather both had diabetes, so pretty certain his is hereditary. No high fructose corn syrup in the late 1800s. Well, not much as they traveled across the praire in covered wagons!

I know no one wants to hear this. I have been diabetic for 40 years. I check my blood sugar more often than most some times as often as every hour. I have no right to allow my diabetes to affect my children nor my wife. That would be immoral when I can actually do something about my disease. I also exercise up to three hours per day, and I think I should train for the Olympics in the 1500 meter just to prove diabetes does not need to affect anyone's life as long as they want to inject insulin. I also refused long acting insulin and simply use the short acting. It works better, it is closer to what the body makes and that is the rest of my story.
Neil – while this is great for you, my blog is about a non-compliant spouse – a guy who does not want to lift a finger, much less exercise! A guy who has tophi gout so bad in his feet that he can’t walk, let alone run. And yes, we all know he could make changes that would improve his condition….but I know I can’t make him do that.
And that’s what’s so sad about all of this. You just can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped
