BENEFITING: American Diabetes Association, Inc.
I have met to many people that have this. It is a controlling condition. I could give you facts that no one really cares about. It is scary to watch your loved ones live with it. They crave food like everyone else, french fries and potato chips. However; for most people it is fine, but people who are fighting diabetes shouldn't have them. Of course you can say what will one fry or one potato chip do to me? When have you eaten only one? It is hard to tell people you love no you can not have that. My husband has to give up pasta all together because it shoots his blood sugar to high. That was one thing we enjoyed together going to our favorite pizza joint and eating rigatoni. When I stop and think about it those days are gone. Why because there is no cure for this cruel and unforgiving illness.
