I feel like a total failure as a wife.. Tuesday it was confirmed that my 40 year old husband has type 2 diabetes. His blood sugar was 192 at his blood draw which is down from the week before as that was 240. We are still waiting to see the results of his A1C (they forgot to run the test). He has started Metformin HCL 500mg tablet once a day and glipizide xl 5mg tablet twice a day. We see the nurse and dietitian in two weeks. He absolutely dislikes needles.. We have already cut back/out certain foods/drinks. Between being so frustured with my husband as he was told last year he was pre-diabetic and I had told him he needed to watch his food, exercise etc.. I feel so helpless and I am in denial. This is one thing I can't fix for him. I have been researching every website and some fb groups I can find for more information, meal ideas and what not. I stopped at the library and checked out 4 books and have read 2 so far. I am so confused on meals. I am so confused how to change our lifestyle and incorporate changes.
