"Sure i would like to share my last year with you, and how i stopped taking 4 different drugs, lost 40lbs, when i was at the point of no return and considered insulin. I did it organically, and i can show you how!"

Welcome to, Kerby!
It is difficult to have a family member living with diabetes. You want to care for them or help them and oftentimes they don't want your help or they resent you even knowing they have it. Well, that was my problem anyway. The truth of the matter is that they are probably just a little confused and it's nice to see you gives me the impression you're looking for more information and education so you better understand diabetes. That's awesome...and your family member is very lucky!
If you need any of us, post a comment and we'll do what we can to help! Again, welcome!
