techtembo888 @DiabetesINFL @CDiabetesInfo are bagels the worst things for diabetics? #DiabetesCHAT
laurenpincusrd Yes! Try not to drink your calories/sugars. #diabeteschat
techtembo888 @ValerieAgyeman their whole grains and oatmeal are great #DiabetesCHAT
cleverlychangin What are some kid friendly low carb dessert options? @DiabetesINFL @CDiabetesInfo #DiabetesChat
mahodorowicz #DiabetesChat Don’t forget your slippers for around the house. Don’t go barefoot if you have diabetes! Costco has great selection!
koshereye @DiabetesINFL I have never been disappointed with @kirklandbrand products @diabeteschat #diabeteschat
techtembo888 @amypcampbell what are some good liquids with electrolytes for diabetics? #DiabetesCHAT
amypcampbell @koshereye @Techtembo888 Large bagels – full of carbs and calories. Go for the whole grain, smaller ones. #DiabetesChat
dentistmel @LaurenPincusRD Agree. I am a big fan of seltzer. #DiabetesChat ad
dentistmel @Techtembo888 @DiabetesINFL @CDiabetesInfo Everything in moderation is fine! #DiabetesChat ad
amypcampbell @Techtembo888 Give coconut water a try – has electrolytes without all the extra sugar found in sports drinks. #DiabetesChat
diabetesinfl Remember you can download our free diabetes store tour from @Costco here: #diabeteschat
mahodorowicz #DiabetesChat Low fat granola cereal is good topping for low fat ice cream or pudding.
techtembo888 @amypcampbell @koshereye thanks for that tip #DiabetesCHAT
amypcampbell @dentistmel @LaurenPincusRD Me too! Can’t get enough of it! #DiabetesChat

maureensrn Re: bagel question. Portion control and most any food is acceptable… foods are the “worst”- learn calories/CHO counts. #DiabetesChat
cleverlychangin @costco_online has a great produce section, which I buy from often. #DiabetesChat
