My mother emailed me tonight to let me know that my dad just found out he has adult onset diabetes. He’s already had a heart attack, too, and he’s not even 65. The sad part is that he has worked hard at eating healthy and exercising since he had the heart attack. He had lost a lot of weight and was feeling really good when I saw him this summer. I feel so bad for him. I know he is going to be really depressed about this. He is already taking a boat-load of medicines.

AS odd as it sounds, since you and I don't really KNOW one another... I will include your family in my prayers and thoughts. Luckily, since it is adult diabetes, it can be somewhat controlled.

>>good thoughts<<

I appreciate that. We have had several serious illnesses in our family this year, and it has been rough.

Wow. I am so sorry.

Is he able to control it with diet or must he have insulin injections?

No, he won't have to have injections. He's going to a class next week to learn about it. And he has to take medication.
