    Hi,

    I found one of your blogs but I can’t seem to find it right now.

    My sibling was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the beginning of the year and our whole family is floored. He is in his 20’s and we have tried to get over the guilt but it hasn’t been easy.

    You see, while he doesn’t necessarily have really bad eating habits, we eat out frequently and I don’t know if that was the cause of it was genetics.

    Going out and eating is how he explores the world. He sees commercials for food and will want to go out and try the new burger or sandwich.

    We’ve had some difficulty managing his blood glucose because for whatever reason his readings are a bit on the high side. Recently, I thought I’d give him some independence and told him to walk home by himself which was less than 5 minutes but he had to walk by a 7-11. Well, he detoured and bought ha 2 lite of coke.

    He has difficulty understanding that his diabetes means he can’t eat the foods he used to like. If it was as simple as giving up soda then that would be a miracle. But now even savoury foods have to be limited.

    With this diagnosis, he will need to be supervised all the time in case he is tempted. We let him have a treat on the weekend, which is a burger at his favourite fast food place (without sauce and a salad instead of the fries) and diet soda.

    How do you manage?

    I notice with this receipe you used molasses, I thought that wasn’t allowed because of the sugar content? We met with a dietician but we really haven’t had much success.

    He is scared of needles and getting his BG everyday is hard on him. Let alone getting his A1C

    Those little weenies look like they’d be a wonderful party food, too!

    I would never have thought to put those ingredients together but that looks great!
