My name is Katrin. I am not diabetic, but my best friend has had this disease for many years. And it's like a torture to look at his sufferings. He has tried a lot of treatments but still failed to find anything effective. The disease is progressing day by day and he is in despair and can't enjoy life. I'm here to find some pieces of advice regarding diabetes and effective ways of the treatment which would help my friend.

What's your friend's diet like? Limiting carbohydrate intake is the first line of defense for diabetes, and (sadly) a step many people are not willing to take. What meds is he supposed to take? If he's a T2 perhaps it's time to start insulin therapy. Let us know some more details so we can point you to the best resources.

Welcome, Katrin. I hope you'll return and give us a few more details . . . perhaps there are things your friend just refuses to sacrifice for control of his diabetes, but maybe with your support & our guidance, we can help him understand how important it is to eat right and take care of himself.

He should just go on a pump and say good bye to all his worries. LOL.
