Hey All,

I'm asking for help from all my blogging friends. My brother just found out he has diabetes and his sugar level was so high it's a wonder he wasn't in a comma or worse. He had called the doctors office and they told him to go to the ER and they said his sugar was high gave him an insulin shot and put him on pills. Told him a few things that he shouldn't eat and should eat but no other information. He is now waiting for an appointment with his doctor. But in the mean time he is driving his poor wife crazy trying to figure out what he can and can not eat. If anyone can please guide me to the right information to send them I would appreciate it. If you have any recipes I would love to have them to share with them. Thank You all in advance!

Take Care :)

Please...Please have your brother go to an endrocrinologist (diabetes is their thing)Don't fool around with a GP or Inturnist...we've been thru this!!My husbands sugar was unstable for 4 years...then his heart doc. MADE him go to the Endro. Doc and his sugar was stablized in 6 weeks....

Your family will be in my prayers......LindaMay

Nothing to mess with. I'm sure you can find some things on the computer about this. If I come across anything, I'll send it your way.

Oh I'm so sorry, Vickie, but glad they found it so he can get some help... I can't help you, but I'm sure there is plenty of good sound medical advice on diets on the internet... in the meantime, I'll be praying he gets it under control!

Hi Vick,
Wow, that's a shocker, try going to Taste of Homes website and looking under diabetic recipes~ They have some awesome ones.One year for Christmas, I purchased their hardcover annual diabetic recipe book for our neighbor/ very dear friend. In the meantime, I'd get a referral if necessary to go see the Endro Doctor ASAP. Tell brother, he is in our thoughts and prayers.
Love ya, Cousin Mel
