Festive Season Diabetes Tips

Keep track of your blood glucose levels on a regular basis.

Use skimmed milk instead of full-fat milk when making sweets at home.

Instead of sugar, use jaggery, dates or stevia as sweetener.

Stay away from high-calorie snacks like samosas and papads. Choose roasted almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts instead.

Adjust your insulin dosage based on your carbohydrate intake.

Limit your consumption of caffeine-containing products.

Try eating on a smaller plate. When you look at the plate, you get a sense of fullness.
