What do you do? Without insulting anyone. Do you take a taste, politely as my mother always said, or do you stay away from all that is bad? Can you bring your own without being too obvious? What if you did not let anyone know you were diabetic? What do you do then?

I would eat a little of everthing I wanted and then if any one says anything you can say you are not feeling well.

I just tell the truth. The beauty of telling the truth is that you don't have to have a good memory since you don't have to remember what you lied about.

I guess you are all right, but I just don't know what step to take now; Maybe I will go with the eating a little and saying I do not feel well. It is only a sort of half-lie, and hopefully a small get together, maybe by Christmas that will change. :->)lilmarm52

If you were lactose intolerant you wouldn't have a little milk. If you had a food allergy you wouldn't eat what you are allergic to. So just explain that in order to insure your own health you can't eat certain foods. If anyone is put out by this it is there own problem.

Just eat a little of the stuff you like , and that way you don't insult anyone, and of course just tell them why you can't overeat

Well usually everyone knows I am a diabetic being its been 46 years now. Thats the good time I do use my diabetes as a crutch. I have a way of saying no thanks, I can't have that with my diabetes the carb count is to high!!(LOL)…Debe

Everybody I eat Holiday dinners with know I am diabetic. My family is planning diabetic friendly Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. They are very supportive. My cousin said she is enjoying the challenge of making sure everything she bakes is DFriendly.
