There's a lady I work with at the food bank who was dx'd with "pre-diabetes" with numbers like those. She asked me a lot of questions, and I very nicely told her that I was sorry to tell her that I didn't know much about the bad kind of diabetes, since we don't have to follow diets at our house. We just give insulin.
But won't it be nice to have someone who understands about having diabetus...I mean the only difference is in the severity and the age at onset...right? Sorry couldn't resist.
I did. I told her that I thought it was much worse to have to follow a diet. We have to do a lot more pokes, of course, but we just eat normally, not all the sugar-free, modified gross stuff.
