The sugar killer
To date, over 387,000 live with it. Dad was diagnosed last year after we noticed he was loosing weight and urinating frequently. We took him in for a check up at the clinic and the doctor was quite alarmed at the results.
We completely changed the household diet to a healthier more nutritious one. On the caretaker website that we use to hire all our professional aid, we found a nutritionist come and help us understand food associations and a how to compose a proper meal. There are so many different diets for diabetes that it became fascinating to understand them, the importance of the right ingredients as well as master the cooking skills.
There was another radical change in the family routine; we all started to exercise more to entice dad to accompany us, as it is so important to have some sort of activity for diabetics. Some went to the YMCA pool; others went on walks or bike rides as transportation… whenever we all could, we would! Mom even joined a senior yoga class at the town hall that she actually even started to enjoy. All of a sudden dad found the whole family engaged in some sort of activity on a regular basis so he wanted to be a part of it too.
Thanks to the help we hired to accompany us in the understanding of what we needed to change in order to help dad, we learned so much about how important a balanced life is for our health. We can take our bodies for granted until we truly get it and live life according to the laws of health.
Dad now takes great pride in boasting his newfound lifestyle all over town and even beyond its boundaries. He created his own blog on the web to coach those in need a kick-start on the diabetes-blazing trail. He has to date a lot of followers and has gained so much knowledge in the domain from those who have experience on the subject matter. He takes great pride in helping those who just got diagnosed. He gives them profound hope for a better future and a newfound passion to live a new way of life that makes those in need even happier than they were before.
