Should diabetics drink soda and eat candy?
I have been trying to get my diabetic wife to stop drinking regular soda and stop eating candy (M+Ms, Snickers, etc.) for a long time now. She is very overweight and I do not know how to explain to her that it is VERY bad for her. Any HELP would be appreciated! Links to websites about the ill effects would be GREAT. We have a 8 year old daughter and I want my wife to be around when she gets older. Thanks!!!

No!! Could you try and get her diet soda and try different kinds of sugar free candy, if shes that addicted to the sweets. I was all about sugary candy and soda too when I got it but I switched over to diet soda right away and really, it tasted better! The thought of even drinking a regular soda makes me sick. I then stopped drinking pop all together and do not even miss it a bit. Any kind of sweets seem way too sweet once youre used to not having them anymore. You should really try candy and ice cream treats with splenda. Just go to the store and buy sugar free ice cream bars and see if she can tell the difference, theyre awesome!! But the overall effect of a healthier diet and controlled blood sugars will REALLY make her feel so much better and have a lot more energy which will satisfy her 100 times more than any candy bar or pepsi ever could, guaranteed! Good luck!!

If her own husband can't make her understand I am so very sorry to say we can't either. Somehow she needs to relize she is killer herself. I am a type 1 diabetic w/ 2 wounderfull children and a loving husband. i take care of myself for myself and for them. my father was a type 2 and he died when I was 15. For years he doctors told us he would be a healthly man IF he quite smoking, watched what he ate and lost weight. But he didn't and I spend my childhood watching my dad die. Good Luck

Doing what she is doing will guarantee one thing, an early death by organ failure, or the loss of hands, legs, eyesight.

she needs to quit now it wasnt good for me.I take another shot twice daily to control high bloodsugar levels Look into the shot form of Byetta from yuor doctors

I understand you want you wife healthy and well, but if she does not want to change her lifestyle habits, then all the information in the world won't help her. I'm sure her doctors have educated her on proper diet and medication management. If they haven't, then she needs to get a new doctor because her health could be in serious jepardy if she is consuming excess sugar. Good luck to you and your family. For some info on her illness try the American Diabetes Association link provided.

I know it's difficult to watch someone damage their health day after day. I live with a smoker and it's like watching him die right in front of me every time he lights up. Anyway, harping on her for her bad habits won't help, no matter how good your intentions are. Let her know up front how you feel about her poor habits and her health and leave it at that. If she asks for help, by all means jump at that chance. You can lead a horse to water, as they say, but can't make it drink. The same goes here.

You need to talk with her and let her know their are healthier food choices that taste just as good and get her to agree with it. It can kill her if she keeps eating the way she want. Diabetics need to watch their sugar intake.

I hope these help. My mom is diabetic and I look these sites over all the time for help for her. Good Luck!!

Of course she shouldn't be eating that stuff. My Dad is diabetic and he just recently had a heart atack due to his diet and high glucose levels. Try to make your wife make changes before this happens to ger. She has a child that I'm sure she wants to see grow up. If she can just make simple changes like drinking water instead of soda and using 7 grain or oatmeal bread instead of white bread it can make a difference.

Why not suggest the family go for a 20-30 minute walk every other day. This will help lower your wife's blood sugars.

A good book for your wife wouldbe the Schwarzbein Principle. It's a diet plan for diabetics, though anyone can follow it. Even if she only did about half of the things in the book, there would be a huge change in how she looks and feels.
