Diabetes Affects Everything

Most people think of diabetes, or "the sugars," as some in the south so affectionately call the disease, as a condition that prevents anyone from eating sugar. Fortunately, that is not the case! Diabetics can eat sugar! In fact, diabetics can eat just about anything, in moderation that is.

Moderation is key for any diabetic's daily routine. Whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or happy hour drinks, diabetics can eat anything, anytime, as long as moderation is observed.

Not only does diabetes affect one's eating habits, it can also affect mood, physical activity, and work, just to name a few items.

For diabetics, this means taking care of a few other responsibilities as well. Click here to see a list of tips for diabetics as we spring forward!
