The American Diabetes Association (ADA) provides a number of resources to individuals living with diabetes, including tips on how to maintain healthy eating habits while spending the night out at a restaurant.
To begin, individuals should have a firm understanding of when they will be dining, particularly if they need to take an insulin shot or diabetes medication. People with diabetes should discuss insulin doses and eating times with a trusted medical professional.
Ordering from a restaurant is another critical process for individuals living with diabetes. Though dietary habits and goals can differ considerably from one person to the next, it is important to patronize restaurants that offer an array of choices when it comes to limiting salt intake, increasing fiber, and other nutrition priorities. Those with diabetes should not hesitate to make certain requests, if possible, such as declining any extra butter or salt during the preparation process. To learn more, visit www.diabetes.org.
