My Father and Diabetes


Saturday, August 19, 2006


I must admit that I am a little bit pissed off at my father for two reasons.  First of all, because he never really prepared or shielded me from diabetes and secondly for not taking care of himself.


He was diagnosed with Type 2 about 10 years ago.    However, I know that he really did not try to control it the way he should have.  It was not until a few years later, when he had some other health issues, that he lost any weight.  He probably did not do any reading on the disease beyond what the doctor may have given him.  By him not understanding what diabetes was or how it was caused or that there was a genetic component to the disease, he did not give me any warnings about the disease.  I really do not blame him for not telling me anything he did not have the proper knowledge to tell me.  However, I am upset that he did not read anything for his own benefit.


Over the last few years, this giant, invincible man that was my father has been not well.  Although he does not cite diabetes as the root cause for some of these ailments, from what I am reading, they might be.  If he would have just taken a little better care of himself when diagnosed, maybe he would have not be feeling as ill as he is these days.  I am trying to educate him now, but I hope that it is not too late.
