(HealthDay News) -- The holiday season can be difficult to navigate if you have diabetes. But with proper planning you can stay healthy, the American Diabetes Association says.
The ADA offers this advice:
- Focus on timing. If your meal will be later than usual, eat a snack before to keep your blood sugar where it needs to be.
- Stay active during the holiday season, to compensate for overeating.
- Eat healthier versions of holiday foods.
- Keep portion sizes small.
- Eat lots of vegetables.
