Halloween: Less D, More Fun!

by Leighann on October 29, 2010

We have a few strategies for making Halloween less about diabetes and more about the fun. Head on over to Diabetes Mine where I am guest posting. Read Tricks For Treats.

Did you happen to read the article Enjoying Halloween When You Have Diabetes in the October issue of the American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Forecast Magazine? I offer a few tips there as well.

Did you rise to the challenge of making Halloween decorations with your used OmniPods or other medical waste? Read how you can make Spooky sPODers and PUMP-kins.

Need to know carb counts of the Halloween haul? I have a list of common candies by size and weight. Information includes links to the manufactures’ websites.

And don’t throw out all that candy, save the high sugar candies such as Smarties and Skittles for treating low blood sugar. Did you know that Smarties and glucose tabs have the same first ingredient dextrose?

Read all of my writing on Halloween.

Happy Haunting!
