Diabetes Checkpoint - November 2020

Thanksgiving Tips For Managing Your Diabetes

Mmmm, the smell of turkey and stuffing, the salads, buttered buns and homemade desserts. For many of us, Thanksgiving is a time for family and feast. This can be a challenge if you have diabetes but with a bit of planning and thinking ahead, you can still enjoy the feast without causing too much disruption in your blood sugars and well-being.

Here are a few tips just to get you started:

Remember, portion size counts. Using the Choose My Plate recommendations of ½ plate non-starchy vegetables, ¼ plate meat or protein and ¼ plate starches or carbohydrates will get you off to a good start.

Appetizers
• Go for the raw veggies rather than chips and dip
• If making a dip, use fat free cream cheese or non-fat yogurt

Main Course
• Turkey-you’re in luck, it’s good for you and has no carbohydrates so enjoy
• Be selective with your carbs, potatoes/stuffing/bread—portion size is the key

Side Dishes
• Sweet potatoes, leave off the brown sugar & marshmallows
• Enjoy plain green beans instead of the green bean casserole
• If making cranberries, use an artificial sweetener such as Stevia

Dessert
• Fresh fruit is a great option but most of us want that pie. Cut back on your carbohydrates in the main course and savor a piece of that pumpkin pie.

And if your blood sugar gets out of control or you need help in managing your diabetes, contact your local Rural Health Care, Inc. provider to schedule an appointment. We are here and ready to be your health care partner!

Diabetes Checkpoint - October 2020

Are you at risk? Four simple words, yet a positive response can have long-lasting implications when you are referring to Type 2 diabetes.

What is type 2 diabetes? This is a condition that results when your body produces insulin but it is not enough or your body does not use the insulin it produces efficiently.

Who is at risk ?
• A woman who had gestational diabetes or a baby weighing more than 9 LBS at birth
• Those with a family history of diabetes
• Overweight or obese individuals
• Middle aged and older adults (greater than age 45)
• Those who get little to no exercise
• African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and those who are of Hispanic ethnicity

If you are not at risk as identified in the list, continue to maintain a healthy weight, get regular exercise and eat a healthy diet to keep your risk low. If you are at risk, however, contact your local Rural Health Care, Inc. provider to schedule an appointment. Your provider will discuss your risk factors and concerns and see if additional testing is needed. We stand ready to be your health care partner!
