He was diagnosed two years ago and he has such a poor attitude on life. I’m struggling with the teen age problems as well as trying to get him to control his numbers. He constantly has to be reminded to check himself and when I do he smarts off to me. When I’m not around to remind him he always forgets. The Doctor he last saw was very agree and said she would not waste her time with someone who doesn’t want to take care of himself. The sugar is already affecting his bones. Any suggestions on how I can get him to see the light? Many family and friends have repeatedly tell him what the results of him not taking care of himself would be. I see him dying at an early early age and it tears me apart. HELP!!!
My husband has had diabetes since he was 3 years old…he is now 28……..He has a insulin pump..He has had it since he was 17…..ask your Dr about one…they are wonderful….
Also is on a low carb intake or known as the Adkins diet…..its a diabetic Diet……. Regular exercise is also needed for a young adult…………..
Also….Keep there diet the same though out the week….like same thing every morning to eat…..Eggs and a meat are always good in the morning….stay aways from breads…they turn into sugar……
My husband has had a great attitude about being a diabetic…. He has over come the situation….He is now a wonderful tax attorney.With is own law office….He loves to read ,write, study…Hes now taking his master of law…… You can always turn a bad situation into a good one……You just have to keep there hopes running high and let your son know that nothing can stop him …even diabetes…..
As a mother you know you have to let your son know this this is controllable..And he’ll need your help…..and if it is controlled he will live a better and longer life……….I thank god that my husband has a wonderful mother that took such good care of him as a child …that he is doing so good now as a young adult.
Best of luck….
