It’s All In The Planning
There’s no doubt that managing diabetes this festival season can be tricky. But with a little groundwork, you can make the process as smooth as possible. Here are some tips to get started:
1. Stay organized. Make a plan for meals, snacks, and drinks before each event. This will help keep you on track and avoid getting caught off guard by cravings.
2. Be realistic about your expectations. Don’t expect to go without food all day or cure your diabetes overnight, miraculously. It takes time and effort to manage diabetes properly, so don’t expect it always to be easy.
3. Seek out support. Talking to others with diabetes can help you learn more about it and how best to manage it. And if you need assistance, many resources are available, including online forums and support groups.
4. Get plenty of exercises. Exercise helps improve blood sugar control in people with diabetes and has other benefits, such as reducing anxiety and improving sleep quality.
Think About The Heat
Diabetics and those with diabetes-related conditions must be especially careful during the summer due to the extreme heat. According to the National Diabetes Information Center, heat stroke is a serious health problem that can occur when the body’s temperature reaches 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius). Symptoms of heat stroke include muscle weakness, dizziness, rapid heart rate, and eventually fainting or coma.
Smart food choices
If you are looking to manage your diabetes this festival season, here are some tips to keep in mind:
-Start by tracking your blood sugar regularly. This will help you better understand how your food choices affect your blood sugar levels.
-Choose healthy snacks that will keep your blood sugar stable and avoid foods that will spike your blood sugar.
