The holidays bring friends and family together, often after many months or years apart. Have you ever seen someone you know well and worried about their health? If you’ve been living with diabetes (or caring for someone who has it) for any amount of time, you already have a few important experiences under your belt. You’ve seen the pre-diagnosis symptoms, you’ve conquered the highs and lows, you’ve seen how diet and exercise can help. If you feel like you want to approach a friend or family member about their health -- if the issues they’re having seem all-too familiar to you -- here are some tips for starting that difficult conversation.
Welcome to Diabetes Link!

It’s cold outside, but that shouldn’t stop you or your children from getting fresh air and exercise. Before you do, though, check the temperature and decide how long you want to be out in the cold.

Having fun in the winter sun is a great way to get exercise. Just like any other activity, you’ll need to monitor your blood sugar levels and treat highs or lows as needed. Here’s what to expect on your icy adventures.

Leftovers might just be the best thing about Thanksgiving. You can certainly heat up a plate and enjoy the same meal all over again, or you can try making entirely new dishes. Turkey is the star of many of these, but there’s also stuffed mushrooms, muffins, and even ideas for leftover wine (you know, if you have any).
