2. Eat on Time
Timing is everything when it comes to eating with diabetes, whether you’re at your own kitchen table or a fine-dining restaurant. Since you can’t control how quickly the dining room and kitchen operate on any given lunch or dinner rush, try to book a table for just before your regular meal time. This way, you’ll leave yourself time to get settled, and allow the rest of your party to arrive before the orders are taken.
You may be able to get away with a bit of extra waiting, but if you rely on insulin or medication to be taken with food, don’t chance it: ask to order some fruit or a small appetizer to get you through.
Although diabetic foot problems may not immediately spring to mind, for reasons to control your sugar, they should be at the top of your list of concerns.
