So how did you hold up during Thanksgiving dinner?  Darn it, I'm a bit late posting this, but in case you're still up against some very large meals this weekend, have look at John Crowley's useful Tips for Getting Through Thanksgiving with Diabetes. I especially like the notes on What to Do If You Blow It: "Don't let one mistake at Thanksgiving spiral into five weeks of high blood sugar... from Thanksgiving all the way to New Year's Day." Right.

In any case, this week we've turned our attention to what to do about other people who get meddlesome while you're trying to enjoy your food:
