If you’re going to a dinner party over the holidays, there’s certainly no reason why you shouldn’t let your host/hostess know in advance of any dietary restrictions you may have because of your PCOS. This is especially true if you also suffer from diabetes.
Most people appreciate knowing if there are any specific needs so that they can make their guests comfortable. It may be something as simple as setting out an artificial sweetener with the coffee.
And don’t forget, if you have diabetes, to check your blood sugar levels regularly during the holiday season. The resulting feedback is invaluable and the information provides a lot of insight into what an individual’s personal limits are.
The ideal goals, regardless of the season, are fasting values of 80-120 mg/dl before eating and about 140mg/dl 2 hours after eating. Values higher than these indicate that there may be a little too much holiday cheer going on!
