Managing diabetes can be tough, despite how common it is in Americans. It can be especially tough during the holidays when tables are filled with sweets and carbohydrates. Practice portion control on sweets and starches to limit your blood sugar changes. You might also bring a dish of your own that better fits your diet.
- The holiday season is quickly approaching, and with many upcoming festivities, you can also expect plenty of sweet treat temptations.
- In the United States, more than 29 million people are suffering from diabetes, a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high.
- Those with diabetes often have to closely watch what they are eating, which can make the holidays a frustrating time.
