I have a friend (gay if that matters) who WAS a diabetic. He enjoyed running and roll-skating, also swimming.
By choice, he turned to a vegan diet, where he would have cakes only on marked ocassions and very little alcohol.
But as you undoubtedly know, your friend is still (at least technically) a Type 2 diabetic, even though his blood glucocse level is well controlled without oral medication.
The big difference for him is, he is able to manage his diabetes with diet and exercise alone.
If you do not agree to such placement, do not provide the information.The factor that is the biggest problem in dating is food, but it isn't that hard to cope with dietary restrictions -- because the major restriction isn't what you can eat but how much of certain things you can have.Fast food places are always a problem, but with a little education and experience you can learn which menu items are best; you can also just decide that you won't eat the complete serving, especially with high-carbohydrate foods.Buffets are like a two-edged sword: all those tempting choices (not to mention "all you can eat"), but usually you can find plenty of lower-carbohydrate items.With full-service restaurants or when eating at home, check the carbohydrate count if it's given or just look for the healthier items and/or smaller portions.
