Courtesy photo Here's to Health:// When you start looking like the turkey-duck! Contributed by Hidalgo County Health Consortium By MELVYN GELB RN, MPH, CDE It's that time of year. Holi- days, food; friends, food; time to give thanks, food; drinks, food; and don't forget the food! This is a time of year when we can have a lot to be joyful for, a time to reflect, a time to do some partying, and frequently, a time for gaining weight, increased stress, regrets and concern for our health. This can be es cially true for those with health problems already, like dia- betes. Is this necessary? Does it have to happen every year? Well, I say no, I say we can do a 16t of the above but with just a little fore- sight and a little (very little) self restraint we can avoid much of the weight gain, stress, regrets and decrease in health. There are three basic considerations that are spe- cial to this time of year; family & friends, eating, and alcohol. Stress can cut across all three of these considerations, so we will deal first with stress during the holi- days. Some general rules for re- ducing stress during this time are: Plan ahead Avoid relatives who stress you (sit at the other end of the table, no talking of poli- tics, etc.) Find 5 minutes a day to just sit and DO NOTHING. Take a warm bath, a walk, read a good book, listen to seasonal music, or pray. LAUGH - Laughter always helps in times of stress. No, it doesn't have to be funny, just put back your head and laug h out loud. Trust me, this will always help. Consideration one: family & friends. This is what the holi- days are all about. Enjoy your family and friends to the fullest during the holiday season. If there are family members you don't like, or get along with, well ..... (see stress above.) This is a good time to stay active, which will help burn off some of those calories. Get inx, olved with fam- ily home activities Play with the grand- children (this is wonderful physical exercise) hydrates Sing carols Laugh Consideration two: holiday eating, whether in restaurants or with family/friend gatherings. Begin by realizing that you do have a choice. You are in con- trol and don't have to be pushed around by holiday whirl or pres- sured by other people. Decide early on what you are going to do with your eating (plan ahead) Take a walk before the big meal Drink an 8 ounce glass of water before eating Eat the salad and veg- etables first Put the meat in the cen- ter of your plate and then sur- round it with a little bit of this and a little bit of that Avoid seconds, or try the vegetables, salad and meat for seconds, before the carbo- You can let loose a little bit...or go totally out of con- trol. It is always up to you. "EAT THE BEST AND AVOID THE REST" 'Consideration three: alco- hol. Alcohol can be worked into the diet best when blood sugar levels are under control. Alco- hol should be in addition to a meal, not by itself. Alcohol can interact with some diabetes and other medications, please speak with your pharmacist about this. Alcohol is metabolized by the body as fat (so it can defi- nitely add to weight gain) and if we are discussing beer, that can al'so lead to increases in blood sugar lev- els. Consumed in .... moderation with food, al- cohol may not raise blood sugar levels. Consuming alcohol on an empty stom- ach can be dangerous if you have diabetes, because skip- ping meals can cause hy- poglycemia (low blood sugar.) Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) effect can last for 8-12 hours and look like drunkenness, thereby not being recognized for what it is. PrecautionS: drink plenty of water, avoid sugar based alcohol drinks, allow only 1 drink per day for women and 2 drinks per day for men, a serv- ing of alcohol is: 5 oz. of dry wine, 1.5 oz. of distilled liquor, 12 oz. of beer (low carbohy-. drate.) We can all enjoy the holi- days; food, friends, even alco= hol, if we just pay a little atten- tion and don't allow ourselves to abandon our common sense.
