Making Fighting Diabetes A Team Effort

Even though my husband has diabetes and I don't,we work as a team when it comes to what and when we eat. It has made his transition to low carb/sugar eating a lot easier and both of us are much healthier because of it. Together we achieve more. What affects one, affects all at our house.

Take care of those feet!

Unfortunately, diabetics are prone to many diseases including gangrene.. Please, please remember to dry between your toes after bathing or swimming. If you cannot cut your toe nails properly, ask a friend or family member.

Alway eat a protein with a carb.

While it is the most helpful thing to know about eating with diabetes, I am surprised how many people don't know this "secret." ALWAYS combine a carb with a protein at every meal or snack.
