    finding a diabetic diet for someone that speaks very little English, first language is Spanish. I have some friends that own a Mexican restaurant here and one of their mothers has been diagnosed with diabetes. Her daughter, who is my friend, has asked me if I'd help her mother with her diet restrictions. I do not speak any Spanish and sure can't read it. I did a search, in hopes of finding something bi-lingual but had no luck. I did get a doctor to see her that speaks Spanish, but he can't be with her enough to help her with her diet, too much. She is scared to death she is going to die from it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi wave.gif Jacqueline! That is really great to have you reach out to a friends mom and help her through a journey! There is quite a few information links in which you could use.

    I'm not a hundred percent sure what you need, like a diet or information on diet tips, so I've tried to include different links: (basic info) (more basic info for foods - healthy eating) - look for this:
    Diabetes y La Dieta: Recetas para el Éxito (PDF) (print out and give to her)

    A great web reference site, (easy to use)

    Let me know what you think.

    wave.gif Jacqueline. It is good having you around. Hope the info that Andi gave you can be helpful. I remember when DH was first accepting of his diabetes. It was very scary and unsettling. Hope your friend can find the answers she is looking for. Please don't be a stranger. We would love to see more of you.

    hi! icon_smile.gif just a thought .... in Chrome Browser .... do this:

    Parlez-vous français ? Google Chrome's built-in translation bar helps you read more of the web, regardless of the language of the webpage.

    Look for the translation bar at the top of the page whenever you come across a page written in a language that isn't one of your preferred webpage languages. To translate the page, click Translate. To dismiss the translation bar without translating the page, click Nope.

    Enable or disable the translation bar

    Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
    Select Settings.
    Click Show advanced settings.
    In the "Languages" section, use the "Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language I read" checkbox to adjust this feature.
    Adjust translation bar settings

    Click Options to customize how translation bar will behave based on the language.

    Select Always translate [language] to English to automatically translate pages written in this particular language.
    Select the following to control whether the translation bar should show up for specific sites and languages:
    Select Never translate [language] if you don't want to see the bar for the language you're viewing.
    Select Never translate this site if you don't want to see the bar for pages within the site you're visiting.
    Right-click any page and select Translate to English, even if you disable the translation bar for a site or language.
    The translation bar is triggered whenever you visit a page that isn't written in one of your preferred webpage languages. Learn how to adjust your webpage language preferences in Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS.
    How automatic translation works

    The contents of a page are only sent to Google if you choose to translate them; otherwise, they are never sent to Google to detect the language. If you choose to translate a page, the text of that page is sent to Google's translation service for translation. Your cookies are not sent along with that request and, if the page you are on is encrypted with SSL, Google Chrome also sends the translation request over SSL. This communication with Google's translation service is covered by the Google privacy policy.

    Google's translation service uses machine translation. Keep in mind that machine translation currently isn't as accurate as actual human translation. So Google Chrome's translation feature can probably help you understand the gist of a page and individual words. But it probably can't help you with poetry or pages that contain complex grammar or technical vocabulary.

    Sorry I have not been back, but would like to thank Andie for the resources. I have printed and taken to my friend for her to give to her mother. I need to check with her on how she is doing, too.

    I also need to do some work on my own self. My A1C went in three months from 4.8 to 6.1 and that did not make me happy but I do know the reason for it, so I need to settle down and get back to eating the way I should.

    a thought:

    if she's local, find the annual diabetes convention closest to you /her/both and go.

    ours in Denver is in Feb this year.. coming up really soon!

    I go every year and find something new to get turned on to.
