    I suppose junk food is out of the question, there are others getting obese from it.

    If he wasn't type 1, it would probably work at least make him put on fat, but A)He needs protein to build muscle and B)Sugar levels would just go up.

    But we need to do it properly, living on sugar and flour won't help.

    ***!!! You think after 50 years of Type 1 he's going to be cured of it by becoming vege? Get real.



    He needs protein, he needs to build muscle mass.

    I didn't ask for a diet anyway, it was a FYI.

    Had a bad episode with blood poisoning in my late teens and lost a lot of weight.

    A new friend at the time, who was a body builder/weight lifter, put me on a weight gain plan, (bl**dy awful tasting), but the weight training part, which your hubby would not be able to do fully, stacked on just under 2 stone.

    Still take two of the wonder foods on my breakfast cereal/porridge, brewers yeast and wheat germ, tablespoon of each.

    B/H has type 2 diabetes and now injecting insulin. I give her the wheat germ on her cereal.

    You will see those 5 wonderfoods in the above article.

    We hope you manage to get some weight on your man.

    Best wishes to you both.

    lurking.

    What about a little 'appetite stimulant'? Should be plenty of black market stuff around Napier, maybe bake it into some biscuits... although I suspect it (increased appetite) would mess with his blood sugars if it did work.

    Ahem, there are numerous reasons to avoid that.
    he just has to do it the hard way.

    I am trialing things to perhaps help the loss of sense of smell. Be good if it helped, I suspect not, but worth a try.

    Well doc visit went quite well.

    Apparently she is swedish - she said you can tell from my blonde hair and blue eyes (she has brown hair and brown eyes).
    Not that I care if she is martian...husband asked.

    Anyway she told him he is to have no short acting insulin at all, to listen to me and eat.
    Or he'll die.

    And prescribed some supplement (told her we bought some, well son did).
    And said he is to keep sugars at 8-15.

    Whether he listens or not....he has gained 1kg in 2 weeks though. And man has it been hard work getting him to eat.....
