Here Come the Holidays!
The holiday season is fast approaching. Much of it involves large family gatherings, rich foods, drinks, shopping and traveling long distances to see family. For diabetics, it's extra important to stay focused on being healthy while spending time with family and friends during the holidays.
Here are a few tips for diabetics on getting through the holidays:
- Check your sugar levels. The holidays are busy and being busy can distract you from your normal routine. Remember to set aside a time each day once or twice to check your sugar levels and make sure nothing is amiss.
- Bring a sugar free dessert to dinner. Today, many markets offer delicious sugar free dessert options. If you're not sure what's being served, bring a sugar free option. This way you too can indulge in dessert along with everyone else.
- Check your feet! It's so important for diabetics to inspect their feet daily (and shoes too!) Wear shoes or sneakers that are comfortable, well-fitting and supportive. Try compression socks or stockings when flying or driving long distances to keep your circulations flowing. Don't hesitate to call your foot doctor to address any foot conditions that may develop before they worsen.
- And finally, don't skip meals, eat your food slowly, limit alcohol and stay hydrated at all times. Once the holidays have come and gone, you will be healthier, happy and very proud of yourself!
