    Great preparation ideas
  • It is extremely important to NOT take your regular medication doses if you are not eating due to illness. This can put you into a dangerously low blood sugar requiring emergency care. This happened to me twice. Please contact your Dr if you are not eating for assistance on how to handle diabetes medication.
  • I am not a diabetic yet, but I am sure it is coming. Both parents had it and all my grandparents had it. Some of my family was not good at controlling it, eating the wrong things while not properly monitoring their sugar, yet they survived to old age.

    As a child, I was raised on Grandma's Sweet n Low, but I hope that I can manage it better since there is more knowledge and resources out there for diabetics.

    Thanks for writing this article. It was a great reminder for me.
    Bad advice. No distinction among the types of diabetes. To be better informed, look for info from Dr. Sarah Hallberg.
  • Thanks for the information. I don't drink soda but I do coffee. I didn't know that about coffee. Good article.
  • Diet soda and caffeinated drinks are not healthy suggestions for someone trying to hydrate. Caffeine dehydrates you, and diet soda chemicals are very unhealthy, not to mention addicting and make you crave more sugar.
    Though I don't have diabetes, I know many who do, and I'll be sure to pass on this valuable information to them. Thank you!
    Nice to know now, patella fracture meaning cannot exercise for at least 21 days
  • Good to know ... I'm currently dealing with a cold, sore throat and ear infections so the timing of the article is great!
    Good article...every diabetic needs to know this information. Today was my last day taking Z-Pac because of a cold (low grade temp, whezzing etc) and my sugar was a bit up. Thanks for the reminder information.
  • I am not a diabetic but I know peoples who are. So I can past this on.
    Diagnosed in April as being diabetic, I've read and learned so much about healthy choices and have made many strides in changing my life. It never occured to me that everyday things such as a flu bug or tooth ache could have that effect on blood sugar levels. Great article, very informative.,
