I'm looking for any diabetics who could offer support &/or advice on helping me help my brother... He has been in 2 diabetic comas and had one stroke in the past 6 months. He has 2 daughters living with him, one of whom is in the midst of a series of surgeries and physical therapies to help her achieve a higher level of function. His stress level is very high, and he's shown classic signs of depression since the death of his terminally ill wife two years ago. His daughters need him immensely, and have confided that they worry they might lose their father, too. I fear that he's forgotten that diabetes is a managable disease, and worry for his life. I have had the fortune of good health, mostly, because of my understanding of nutrition. I had some amazing mentors who could cook from scratch (and always did) and create wholesome, healthy meals. My dear brother has not had this godsend as I have, and I'd like to help him get a better understanding of what wholesome, healthy foods really are. He currently eats alot of tv dinners, and is HOOKED on diet pepsi (agghh!). Let's get this guy clued in!!! Please let me know what you know, and thank you.
