Making the Holiday Season Happier and Healthier for People With Diabetes and Their Caregivers
WESTPORT, Conn., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The winter holidays are a time for love, laughter, and family, usually accompanied by trays of cookies, cakes, and cocktails. The abundance of holiday temptations may leave some of the nearly 24 million people in America with diabetes feeling a little less than jolly. Last holiday season, dLife helped over 100,000 online visitors survive the season with the "dLife Holiday Helpline," the first-ever resource of its kind to help people with diabetes have a healthy holiday. Need diabetic recipes for healthy but tasty desserts? Puzzled about how to make a low carb stuffing for your Great Aunt Sally, who has type 2 diabetes? For all of your diabetes holiday questions, dLife is pleased to announce that the Holiday Helpline, sponsored by SPLENDA(R) No Calorie Sweetener, is back and better than ever for the 2008 holiday season at http://www.dLife.com/helpline.
