What Can I do if My Sugar Levels Are High After Diwali?

Amongst several festivals celebrated throughout the year, Diwali - the festival of light, is the most awaited one. Hope you must have celebrated this Diwali well too.

We understand there might have been times where you would have had lost control over your diet and exercise and it would be really scary to see high sugar levels post Diwali. You also might be getting high sugar level symptoms. 

Why is my sugar level suddenly high?

You might be wondering why are your sugar levels which were in a pretty normal range suddenly high. There is no doubt that higher sugar levels are due to having sweets and savory items during the festive time. 

Even though one cannot really avoid eating sweets and other high-calorie items during Diwali time, it is definitely possible to follow certain rules. 

Freedom from Diabetes which has been working in the field of 'Diabetes Reversal' for the last 8 years has found a special way of Celebrating Diwali for diabetics. 

Here are special tips which people with diabetes should follow during Diwali

What sweets are good for diabetics? Are sugar-free sweets ok for type 2 diabetes?

Actually, diabetics should avoid sweets prepared with normal sugar.  They should also avoid artificial sweeteners.  Instead, use a natural sweetener (Stevia) Sweetener to prepare the sweets.

This will not make you compromise on taste and would not increase your blood sugar level. (you can use Stevia in the form of drops or powder)

1) Go for Whole Grain Flour:

Avoid refined products to prepare the sweets like maida and sugar. Make it healthier by preparing it with whole grain flour. (some of the whole grains like Jowar Atta and Khapli Gehu Atta can be used)

2) Enjoy Nuts and Dry Fruits:

Add healthy items like almonds, walnuts, dates, or black currants in the sweets to make it delicious and diabetes-friendly. They taste good and help your sweet get a perfect look.

3) Watch the Quantity:

Eat a limited quantity of sweets. A piece or two will do the job. Consuming a high quantity may lead to increasing your blood sugar level even though you have made the sweets the FFD way. So eat limited and celebrate a limitless Diwali!

When To Eat:

Do not eat sweets on a hungry or empty stomach as you may end up eating more quantity at a time. Always have your meals before you have #sweets.

How to Store/sweets storage instructions:

Store your Diwali sweets in an opaque container. The logic is pretty simple. If you can't see the sweets clearly, your desire of eating sweets may lower down and you won't be tempted to have sweets if your eyes don't see them.

Time To Eat:

Avoid sweets after 6 pm. Usually, our body's metabolic rate slows down during the evening or at night, which results in less or no-calorie burning. Hence, try and avoid having sweets after 6 pm

Important Note: 

These are the special points diabetics should note down in their minds.

  • We advise you to have sweets only if your blood sugar is normal (Fasting below 100 and PP below 140) or at least close to normal.

  • Those who are in an advanced stage of reversal must experiment with different varieties and quantities of sweets and share your freedom stories to inspire others!

Thus, diabetics can definitely celebrate Diwali. Just note that one needs to keep the above points in mind. 

How do I get my blood sugar back to normal after being high?

High sugar level range is common after Diwali, especially in diabetics.  You need not worry.  Follow the FFD Diwali diet instructions, remember the good things that happened, and get back on track.  Start eating right, exercise properly as you used to do before.
