Birthdays and Diabetes

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!

Since I am now 15 years old, I do not have birthday parties anymore unless I am inviting a few of my friends over to hangout. But, for those who are younger, it may be hard to decide if that piece of cake is worth the high sugars that may come later.

Us diabetics already feel different, so one piece of cake is worth the high. We want to be treated the way everyone else is treated. It is not like we are going to be eating cake every single day. Its a once and a while thing.

Here are some suggestions for parents from nbdiabetes.org :Screen Shot 2018-04-25 at 9.34.54 PM

Also, it is good to know how many carbs are in different types of cake. So, from nbdiabetes.org as well, here are some cake types, serving sizes, and carb counts.
