I had a call from our GP today. The results of my husband`s Diabetic check shows his diabetes is not being well managed. I have found out that when my husband goes out alone, he buys chocolate. And at home, although I make sure I have only the right food in, he forgets he has eaten and eats more. He thinks nothing of having a banana whilst I`m dishing up dinner. If I ask him to wait, he either says he`s starving or gets stroppy, thinking I`m rationing his food. He `cheats` his blood test. He still knows it will register a lower glucose level after exercise, so will test his blood after a walk, instead of before. I have read many posts on the Forum which have mentioned diabetes, so I wondered how other carers manage to control diets.
