Getting back some control on the sugars

I have managed to get life back in control. It is a relief to have the sugars back into reasonable numbers. I was getting very tired of waking up to body aches and feeling lethargic the whole day around. IT sure is amazing what higher sugars can do to you.

The holiday season is upon us. Just went through the Diwali/Eid celebrations for the Indian community. Lots of food and lots of sweets. I do not have trouble resisting the sweets, but when they get spread around in front of you, sometimes you just want a nibble. This is how I help to work it out -
- Before getting to a party, always eat something filling. Have a can of diet soda. If the tummy is not growling for food, the choices you make are much saner.
- Never spread out sweets etc in open view in your own home. If having a party, clean off the sweets and stuff and put them away as soon as the party is over.
- EAt the meats. I particularly enjoy Eid for this as there is always some meat to have. Have to watch out for the rice and the breads.
- Try and relax and have fun. Don't stress aboput being diabeteic and watching your diet. Eat a little of everything and stick to the vegis and meat to keep you full. Stress only makes the whole experienece worser.
- Always carry extra cans of diet soda with you. If you are famished, a can sure helps you tide over the time.

This week I need to go and see the doc and get numbers.
