I lost a friend last week to complications of diabetes. He began with oral meds but quickly progressed to being insulin dependent. He didn't take care of himself. He didn't exercise and instead of watching his diet, he decided to eat whatever he wanted and let the insulin take care of it. Last year he spent about 6 months in the hospital with horrible sores on his legs that wouldn't heal. He finally beat that, but he didn't change his ways. He developed congestive heart failure and that's what killed him despite the pacemaker that was put in. I don't want to be morbid, but we do have to remember always that diabetes cannot be taken lightly and tight control is the answer.
At Costco today they were giving away their muffins. Oh my that was tough to walk away from. I love "free" almost as much as I love sugar.
