FROM OUR EXPERTS
I recently returned from a vacation to Vancouver Island, which was wonderful because there were so many scenic places to walk. I also discovered, in a town called Parksville, an Indian restaurant called Amrikko's that had great food. (There seems to be another one in nearby Nanaimo.)
But of course great food alone is not grist for the mill of a sharepost on a diabetes site. What especially impressed me at this place was the special diet menu that one of the proprietors had created. She said she had some friends and relatives with food allergies, so she was sensitive to their needs.
The menu wasn't different. What was different was that each item was tagged with a sticker that alerted the diner to ingredients that could cause problems for some people. Included were Contains wheat, Deep fried in same oil as wheat or dairy, Contains nuts, Contains dairy, and Can be made with no dairy if asked.
What a great idea! It's so difficult to eat in a restaurant...

If you are a two-parent family, sit down, cry a little, and then read this list together and divide up the tasks. Communication between parents as you approach the steep diabetes learning curve will be essential. Below you'll find a checklist for parents of newly diagnosed children with diabetes. If you are a single parent, don’t be overwhelmed! The tasks may seem a lot to handle, but as you build a routine it will become much easier. 1. First of all, don’t panic. Right now you probably feel overwhelmed, confused and scared for your child. That’s normal. But keep in mind that type 1 diabetes is not what it used to be. There are still many myths about diabetes because until insulin was discovered in the 1920s, it was a fatal disease. Now, it is a very manageable chronic disease. The medical establishment ha...
