"sounds like you need to get your girlson a good strictdiet. they would do so much better!" Well coming from my dh's grandfather that has not called to check on my dd, nor seen my family in a year, I took great offense. My kids eat a well balanced diet BUT that would still not change my dd's diagnosis. So I explained it does not have to do with what we eat she has type 1 not type 2... and closed with- all we ask is you do not know what you are talking about and the differences please do not give us advise, I offered books and websites they could refer to and I have always offered my knowledge. My in-laws all attacked saying I told him to shut up and mind his own business as if his grand daughter is not his business. (Oh trust me I wanted to say that but choose to stay the mature one). I know where he got his mis information because at our jdrf walk dd was eating a donut and my MIL told her she should be eating the apple over there not the donut and then when we treated a low on the walk with juice her husband told my dd she should be drinking water . I kinda laughed because one says eat the apple and when she drank apple juice they made a comment. Well my SIL and her husband started posting diabetes facts on my MIL facebook and yep you guessed it all about type 2 saying that a bad diet causes it and if you eat high fiber, low sugar, fruits, veggies it would prolong an onset. Needless to say my poor dd is crushed that her own family does not care enough to simply ask us questions or research the right info before attacking us. She felt like they were saying we caused her diabetes and are going to kill her So my question finally- how would you have taken that comment? At this point they deleted me from FB , I laugh because it makes them look so childish, and no one is speaking.
