well if it helps... show him my 2/17 blog... Most people who have read that were scared whitless at the fact i came close to being 37 and dead. Maybe it will inspire him to make enough of a change that if he had a similar incident.. he could recover from it as well.

I don't disagree but trying to get him to go to the doctor is sometimes - difficult... Although he does recognize that this is important, so maybe it will be easier!

He's had a lot better health in general since he's cut back on processed foods due to allergies to wheat (mild) and xanthan gum (and possibly other corn-derived food additives) - it's hard to find food in a box or bag that doesn't have one or the other (or both) of these things. He also gave up most sodas within the past year or so and finds that he doesn't have the ups-and-downs from the sugar in the soda.

So at the moment, I think whatever his condition is called, it seems to be under pretty good control just from these dietary changes.

If your hubby has familial sugar issues and you suspect he may have some.. I would encourage you get him checked out.. From what my endocrinologist says ...the term "prediabetes" is a load of poo.. you either have it or not... He likened it to when people say you're "sorta" pregnant.. It's a yes or no type of thing.

Nice feature - I don't need it (now - but nice to know it's there if I ever need it!) but it's such a predominant health issue and lifestyle plays such an important role in controlling it!

DH has lot of diabetes in his family and he believes that he is borderline pre-diabetic, so Maybe I need to send him the link (again! You can lead DH to the healthy lifestyle website but you can't make him sign up LOL!)
