My dh's 17 year old son was diagnosed with diabetes today.He just started college..just got to his dorm last week.He had dry mouth and his heart was hurting so he drove himself to the E.R.He's at a University about 3-4 hours away from home.
Well, it turns out..its type 2 Diabetes. His sugar is at 362. He's been admitted to the hospital and is expected to have to stay there for the next 4-5 days.
I know its not the worse diagnosis.It could have been worse.He has a heart condition and we all thought thats what was wrong. So we were suprised to find out this news.
Having diabetes is life changing though to some extent. If you know someone that has this, how did they handle it?Are there any good books/resources I could pick up for them?Any information you have will be helpful and appreciated, thankyou.
