While some 8% of the United States population is diabetic there are millions more who do not even know that they have this condition. Lord knows that I had no idea about my Type 2 Diabetes until I went to the doctor for what I thought was an unrelated condition. Talk about ridiculously high blood sugar levels – I was testing at 426! The doctor told me that since I already adhere to a great diet of organic and real foods, it is highly likely that I can get rid of my Type 2 Diabetes by losing a considerable amount of weight. So I have to work on that, but in the mean time I have my condition under control thanks to some medications that I’m on.
Anyway, I didn’t intend for this to be a rambling entry! I ran across the video below that talks a little bit about how to deal with Diabetes during the holiday season. For those of you out there who are dealing with Diabetes or who have family members dealing with the condition, I thought that sharing this video might be helpful.
I hope that the information in this video has been helpful. All of the best for a happy – and healthy – holiday season!
