Actually there isn't anything you can do - your financee needs to contact his doctor and get in to see him/her. His numbers are way too high. Keep us posted.

What would you do if those glucose numbers belonged to you?

  • If you smoked, would you stop?
  • If you consumed alcohol, regularly, would you stop?
  • If you were very overweight, could you lose 10% of your body weight in the next 6-12 months?
  • Could you check your blood glucose a couple times, everyday, to make certain you weren't over (or under) normal limits?
  • Would you visit your doctor, regularly?
  • Could you exercise at least 30 minutes, daily?
  • Could you maintain a balanced, healthy diet for the rest of your life?


If your fiancee can't take care of himself, what's makes you think he can take care of you? And, if the two of you can't both conclude that a healthy lifestyle is the best course of action, what chance will your children have since they will, likely, be at risk, too?







The point I am making is this. It makes absolutely no difference who has the diabetes. In a marriage, diabetes is a "shared" responsibility, you act as if both of you have the disease, and you become educated and support each other...and, if either you or he has reservations or lacks the maturity to understand what's at stake, isn't it best to know, now, rather than later?

He really needs to get with his doctor and develop a treatment plan (lifestyle changes, medications, etc.) to bring these numbers under control.

Hi lovedwayne and welcome -

Please do have your fiancee contact his doctor immediately.

If he's having trouble with a food plan, perhaps he can get a referral to a nutritionist who can get him on the right track.

The WebMD Diabetes Health Center has a wealth of information about living with and managing diabetes.
