Back it 1994 he went on insulin for his diabetes. Since then he is only taking a quarter of the amount of insulin. This is due mainly to diet. He went on heart, kidney, high blood pressure, and cholesterol medications at this point.
With various complications, surgeries, and a pacemaker/defibrillator my husband has gone on numerous pills, and now a powder for kidney failure.
He also takes over the counter supplements, that his doctors have recommended. Yes, it takes us around an hour a week to do his med planner.
The good news is that many have been cut by half, or a lower dosage, because of his diet. He has also discontinued a couple.
With him only doing minimal exercise due to neuropathy of the feet, I know it is necessary, and thank the Lord that we have these medications to keep him alive. He is 85, and there have been many times in his life, when he could have died. I am so thankful that we live in America where we get regular checks.
