TUESDAY, Nov. 22, 2022 (HealthDay News) — Eating Thanksgiving while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels may seem difficult when you have diabetes, but it’s doable, experts say.
Almost 40 million Americans deal with this issue every day, and not just for holiday meals.

That can only make you hungrier and thwart a healthy diet later in the day, said experts at the MOLLY Diabetes Education and Management Center for Adults and Children, part of Hackensack Meridian Health, in Maywood, NJ
Instead, eat a healthy breakfast like a vegetable-heavy frittata or Greek yogurt with nuts.
