Hi, I'm Heather

I'll keep you updated on the latest in type 1 diabetes management... mostly through my own trials and errors :)

Surviving Wedding Season

Surviving Wedding Season

All about that pre-wedding carb load... 
๐Ÿ’๐ŸปPro-tip: It's officially wedding season & time to bring on the big 3 D's for #T1Ds: drinking๐Ÿพ, dancing ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป & dining ๐Ÿฝ. Mixing the dance floor & alcohol, along with a prolonged dinner, can make my BG dip lower than that limbo stick- so I make sure to grab a snack before I leave. My go-to nibble is @kindsnacks because their bars not only are low on the glycemic index, but the combo of nuts & chocolate is still substantial enough to last me 'til dinner (& survive those painfully long toasts ๐Ÿ™ˆ). Also, don't forget to check sugars throughout the night, & adjust insulin accordingly. Now go put on those dancing shoes!
