You can check out the American Diabetes Association for some good information. Also webmd....ask his doctor for information too.
My husband was just diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Does anyone have any good resources for me to check out? I am a bit overwhelmed and don't know where to begin.
I don't have much to add except everyone in my birth family has it except me for some reason. Make sure his levels are always checked and get the latest strips and methods for testing. They have pens that dispense now instead of syringes which makes things more exact. You will get good advice to help you and everything will be okay Gator.. It does take a period of adjustment to get levels just right and once that is done the most difficult part (besides adjusting here and there) is over. Just make sure you always have enough testing supplies which I know you will.
I don't have much to add, I think everything has been covered.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking about you and your hubby, and I hear you when you say you're overwhelmed. Whenever I have felt this way, I have gone nuts with research. I use the internet and then the library. They have some fabulous books on diabetes, including recipe books specific to diabetes. Once I'm educated, I can make some decisions that make me feel that I'm back in the driver's seat again. Then I don't feel so overwhelmed.
Take care, Gator. Let us know if we can be of any support. You're a fabulous spouse, who dearly loves her husband, and will do right by him. I'm glad he has you.
There are plenty of medical forums and in particular sites catering to diabetes in particular. You will find this video useful.
Or this ones not bad. Type 2 diabetes is definitely manageable. Regular exercise is more than half the battle won.
