Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be in the rear view mirror once again. But before that time comes, does you or a loved one have specific diabetic needs that shouldn’t take the day off—even on a day as festive-filled as Thanksgiving?

At A-1 Home Care, we provide specialized caregivers with a knack for knowing how to enjoy Thanksgiving without hurting the body along the way. Take a look below at some helpful diabetic care advice that will allow the whole family to enjoy Thanksgiving together in the healthiest way possible.

  1. Don’t dine alone. Senior centers often provide opportunities for people to enjoy a tasty Thanksgiving meal with their peers. Sharing the holiday with a companion or two both lifts your spirits and keeps you more attentive to how much you’re eating.
  2. Self-Control is important. Just because it’s the holidays doesn’t mean you can eat whatever you want and still get away with it. Overeating can lead to some surprisingly serious health setbacks, including severe heartburn or even a heart attack. Don’t pile on the gravy, butter, or other high-fat delicacies that Thanksgiving is most known for.
  3. Plan in advance. Remember to have a current knowledge of any medications you are taking. In the case that you have a health emergency, your doctor should be aware of your medical condition and according medications so that he/she can act as quickly as possible. After all, knowledge is power– so keep your doctor aware of your health situation heading into the holidays.
