When I look for recommendations for diet for type 2 and for renal insufficiency, what's good for one seems to be bad for the other and vice versa. I throw my hands up and just think - cook common…Continue

Diabetes or renal insufficiency?

Today, went with DH for his first appointment with the diabetes dept, transferred from neurology. First he got chewed out for his bad diabetes, then later the doc said his diabetes numbers were quite good - A1c 6.6 - but that he's five years away from kidney dialysis. His previous doctor said his diabetes meds may need to be reduced because of the load on other organs. Well, my earlier question here about diabetic and kidney diets being contradictory may be irrelevant now. Looks like I need a…See More

Diabetes 2 and Stage 3 Renal Insufficiency

When I look for recommendations for diet for type 2 and for renal insufficiency, what's good for one seems to be bad for the other and vice versa. I throw my hands up and just think - cook common sense healthy. But are there good resources about diet or recipes for people with both conditions?See More

New member - husband has diabetes 2

The other day, my sister-in-law yelled at DH and told him he eats too much and he's too fat. DH is starting with the diabetes dept in his hospital next week, moved from another dept. If he feels he's blamed by his new doctor, I'm afraid he's going to blow a fuse!! He's not that much overweight now anyway.



DH was diagnosed 3.5 years ago. Both of us were obese in middle age (we're 59), but I got off scot free (touch wood). His ethnic group is different and he was born 3 months… Continue
