Diabees knees for allergies...

April showers bring May 🌷🌺🌼, rompers, iced coffee ... & #allergies.

πŸ’πŸ»β˜€οΈ Pro-tip: If you're like me, Spring means sniffles, itchy throat & a gel eye mask routine that could definitely rival Patrick Bateman's. When it comes to treating my symptoms, I keep it simple & natural. I avoid anything that contains antihistamines or pseudoephedrine, as these meds tend to make me feel jittery & cause BGs to run high. I find that a spoonful of local honey gets the job done (1 tbsp ~17g carb so no double dipping). Make sure it's produced locally - not just for the artisan appeal, but because it contains the pollen you're exposed to on a daily basis so your body can gradually build up immunity.
