Jan, tell us more about yourself and any problems you may be having. We have some experienced diabetics here who may have good information for you.

Tuantakur, tell us more about your friend. If you have questions please ask.

Welcome to both of you, I'm glad you have joined.

Richard

Jan I suggest that you see a diabetes educator who can advise you on proper care technique and also tell you the proper diet you should follow. A dietitian could also be helpful.
