My 70+ dad has diabetes he will still balk at it and insist the insulin is a sham but his taking it is a trade off for not loosing his foot. He also was humbled when after 12 day hospital stay he had to goto the nursing home for recover. Of course his favorite games were laying in the bed hanging off the side and waiting for the nurse to freak out come about an inch from his face and jump to surprise her. They were not amused by his behavior and refusals for therapy to medicine. He hated it there as well.
Now that he is home he is progressively getting less mobile and falls often he says his legs are sore and knees mush. He was dragged to the hospital by me fighting me the whole way charms his dr and not sure he truthful. I have picked my 300pound after off the floor a few times.
Any suggestions pleaseView Thread
