Halloween and the Affects for Diabetics

Halloween is especially hard on people with diabetes, and border line diabetes. For some border line diabetics Halloween and the holidays are prime time for full diabetes to strike. This is because weight gain is very hard on the body, diabetics already have sugar problems, and Halloween candy makes sugar levels elevate frequently.
Over 20 million Americans suffer from diabetes so we have some tips to get through Halloween safely:

1. Put extra effort into dressing up, then candy is the least of your worries!
2. Take dressing up even farther and have a party!
3. Go haunted housing, on a hay ride, or have a bonfire; all these will keep you moving!
4. Trade the candy for healthy treats, if a child is diabetic let them go Trick or Treating, but trade the candy for other gifts or even money!

6. Get extra exercise to account for sugar and carb intake.
