Keep the Candy ( Diabetes )
It is okay to eat any food you like, including sweets and candy, as long as you don’t eat too much. If you know how much you’re eating, you can make adjustments to keep your blood glucose close to normal. Candy and sweets have labels with a nutritional analysis that includes the amount of carbohydrate and fat they contain. This makes it easier to know how much you are eating.
When you know the nutritional content of your favorite sweets, you can compensate by eating less of something else, exercising, or taking more insulin (if this is an option). Some people eat their favorite candy to treat low blood glucose. The challenge is to control how much you eat, especially if you’re so low that you aren’t thinking clearly.
