Diabetes and New Year’s Celebrations

The following question was asked on www.foodpicker.org

“I have recently been diagnosed with diabetes and my wife has pre-diabetes.  New Year’s Eve we always have a large celebration with cocktails and lots of food.  We are growing weary of the party this year given my new diagnosis.  Any tips on how we can still enjoy the party?”

New Year’s is definitely a time to celebrate and you can do so in many ways.  Focus on good company and good conversation.  Eat treats and drink cocktails in moderation and keep the portion sizes to a minimum.  Monitor your blood sugar levels often.  Also, you can bring diabetes-friendly dishes that you and others will enjoy!  You’ll find that you can have all the fun as you have had in the past!  Enjoy!
