Avoid the Halloween Sugar Scare


Halloween celebrations should be a time of fun, but for many kids and adults with diabetes, the holiday can feel more like a trick than a treat. Knocking on doors reaps loads of sweets, which are not recommended for people managing their blood sugar. Disappointment can turn to frustration as you realize there are few treats from your loot that can be safely enjoyed.

This year, instead of going door-to-door for the usual sugary haul, try a family activity that focuses on fun rather than food. The City of Sugar Land is once again sponsoring Halloween Town, an evening of family-friendly activities and entertainment on Sunday, October 27, from 4 – 8 p.m. Princesses and superheroes can come with friends and family for the free attractions sponsored by local organizations and businesses, with friendly ghosts and goblins – not blood or gruesome sights.

For a person with diabetes, blood sugar management is vital for the health of the body, including the feet. Dealing with the reality of this condition is trying, but the sponsors of Halloween Town have tried to make some things easier. There is a shuttle from Mercer Stadium to the Town Square, and while there will be an array of sweet foods, attractions like the story-telling booth will let you enjoy some freaky fun without having so much focus on candy.

If you are experiencing foot symptoms related to diabetes, the specialists at Foot & Ankle Associates are experts in diabetic foot care. Call us with your questions at one of our locations: Sugar Land: 281-313-5335 or Houston: 281-313-0080.
