I’ve developed a good routine for managing my diabetes but I’m nervous about Christmas. How can I enjoy the holiday but stay on track?
Managing your diabetes with diet and exercise is commendable, especially during the holidays. If you already have a good routine established, you can work it in to your holiday plans. This should include checking your blood sugar, taking your medications, exercising, and eating low-calorie healthy snacks. During big meals, enjoy a few of your favorite foods but take small portions. Talk to your physician for more guidance specific to your health requirements. There are also free diabetes support groups where you can learn great ways to manage your condition. Call the Live Well Be Well Center at 536-3728 for more information.
