malinajlove @CDiabetesInfo can be difficult with the dawn phenomenon being unpredictable. #diabeteschat

cdiabetesinfo Q10: Eating/drinking out, parties – how can I get a handle on #Diabetes & social life #DiabetesChat
laurenpincusrd A10: Plan ahead! Check menus online or ask what is being served at a party. Bring a dish you can eat #diabeteschat https://t.co/XB57ZzzTnT
lyfebulb Great question! RT @CDiabetesInfo Q10: Eating/drinking out, parties – how can I get a handle on #Diabetes & social life #DiabetesChat
doctorsoption A10: A bit of good news: moderate alcohol compared to heavy drinking reduces risk for type 2 diabetes http://t.co/ijhgFyycZA #diabeteschat
lyfebulb A10: Try to do some research on the menu before going to a restaurant, to ensure there are healthy options available #diabeteschat
lyfebulb A10: Order side dishes in lieu of calorie-rich appetizers and ask to remove the starch in a heavy main course #diabeteschat
laurenpincusrd A10: Delish low carb party dish! Zucchini, Tomato and Onion Bake: http://t.co/q8cXVsY24k #diabeteschat http://t.co/5n3gYyVCtR

andrewjpg A10. It’s been very hard for me but if I do drink or have dessert I allow myself one sip or bite and that’s it. #DiabetesChat @CDiabetesInfo
doctorsoption A10: Just like anyone trying to keep off that extra 5 lbs during the holidays, the key is moderation #diabeteschat
lyfebulb A10: I recorded two videos discussing just this! #drinks #dining & #diabetes http://t.co/XJtHzqkENx #diabeteschat
maureensrn A10 Diabetes and social life-> check menu online first; have some routine go to food items. Use apps to calculate carbs etc #diabeteschat
pavedsilverroad A10 On the rare occasion I do eat out though, I order a meat and veg. No rice/potatoes/bread. Drink H2O. #diabeteschat
lyfebulb A10: Never drink alcohol without having something to eat to avoid going low later #diabeteschat
maureensrn A10 Diabetes and social life- realize it doesn’t have to be “about the food” and enjoy yourself in the moment. #diabeteschat
malinajlove A10. Had to stop when ended up in the hospital Nt a good idea If I do Im home, ppl remnd me to chck bs etc #diabeteschat @CDiabetesInfo
diabetictalks 10 Social drinking is 2-3 drinks in this world that can be one mixed drink. Drink responsibly to avoid out of control BG #Diabeteschat
lyfebulb I agree, a great piece of advice. Hard for some to remember at times @MaureenSRN #diabeteschat
maureensrn A10 Eat beforehand; check out all food items if it’s a buffet; dance and socialize and stay away from temptation. #diabeteschat
