(HealthDay News) -- The holidays are a time of busy schedules, get-togethers and lots of food. If you have diabetes, it can be a tricky time of year.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions:
- Stick to your regular plans for exercise, diet and sleep schedule as much as possible.
- Eat regularly throughout the day, and use only a small plate.
- Fill up first on fruits, veggies and healthy fare, avoiding heavier recipes and alcohol.
- Check blood sugar often, ideally more often than usual.
