When we found out my daughter was T1, we also found out that my husband was a T2. This didn't come as a shock. He is over weight and did show signs. But we never put two and two together. Now here is the problem. He is on the max Met and takes glip as well. His A1c numbers are not as low as his doc would like. She asks what are you eating and I run off the list. Oatmeal (steal cut, scottish, rolled) in the morning with some butter and a little brown sugar (1tsp or less) and cinnamon. Lunch is a sandwhich with turkey. sun chips, carrots or pear cup. She stopped me there and said, cut out the bread. Don't give him the brown sugar and cut out the pears. Ok so what is left for my husband to eat? His A1c number at this time was 7.1 (I think) and she wants him at 6.5 or lower. The last time he saw her is A1c number was over 8 and she doubled his meds to the max he can take. The 7.1 was after after 3 months of the new meds and a bunch of changes on my side. Cut out MSG, splenda, aspertame, high-fructose corn syrup, and all the family members to these. But she said his number wasn't low enough and I had to cut out more! Since I have a T1 at home (who is 7) I make sure the high GI foods are not in the house, or the empty carbs. I fix healthy foods for both of them. He does test and his numbers in the morning and at bed time have been 150 or less. She doesn't tell me anything I can do for him or if I should be giving him X number of carbs per meal. What else can I do? How many carbs should a T2 be taking per meal?
