A Christmas CGM

Christmas is a time for indulging in the things we love most, drinking alcohol and eating treats. Any diabetic could tell you these things are not a good combination at other times in the year but personally I don’t let diabetes stop me at any time.

Ever since I was diagnosed I feel like I have lived life as a ‘normal’ teenager and young adult but with some extra baggage and Christmas is no exception. My advice for diabetics over Christmas is to plan ahead and don’t eat things for the sake of it, it’s not worth going high for something you didn’t even like anyway.

HOWEVER, my biggest piece of advice is not to let it get in the way. Diabetes is something that never goes away and we never get a day off but if we spend our time worrying about it during this period it’s only going to make us hate it even more. At the end of the day it’s coming with us along the way for many more so why not have a little treat at Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
