Be Supportive: If you live nearby, invite her to go for walks or do other exercises with you. Bring healthy food choices to family gatherings. But don't try to mother your mother. She's an adult, and you need to respect her choices. Absolutely do learn whatever you can about diabetes, because there is a very strong genetic component to it, and there's a good chance it's in your own future.

Great!!!: That is so wonderful to want that for your mom! her insurance however will decide for her what machine she will use because the expensive part are the test strips. Her doctor might even be able to get the machine for free, or a diabetic instructor . Just start asking them. They are all accurate, some just easier to use than others
