Surviving Special Occasions with Diabetes

“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Life is filled with choices. Decisions of all kinds need to be made from the moment we wake until we finally rest at night. For someone living with diabetes, choices are of utmost importance, especially when it revolves around what to eat.

If you are newly diagnosed with diabetes, it may feel as though food choices have now been bound in chains with more restrictions than you can keep track of. The good news is that living with diabetes doesn’t mean having to live being deprived of good food!

“I Will Survive”

Gloria Gaynor made these lyrics famous in her song from 1978. With the holidays around the corner, many diabetics are repeating these words over and over in preparation for the food fest that lies ahead. We want to encourage diabetics not to make mountains out of molehills when it comes to surviving the holidays. There are many tips and tools out there to help you mange your health and enjoy the holiday at the same time.

The American Diabetes Association offers some helpful guidelines:

  • Plan your special dinners meal around your normal mealtime.
  • Be physically active to counteract the “extras” that are consumed.
  • Be selective about food choices and keep portions reasonable.
  • Bring your own diabetes-friendly dish if you eating away from home.
  • If you overdo it, monitor glucose levels and get back on track.

Don’t Reinvent the Wheel

There are many online resources filled with diabetes-friendly recipes for you to try out and show off to your family and friends!

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
