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.

Staffed with a knowledgeable registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, the dLife Holiday Helpline is free and available for online advice 24/7 throughout November and December. Professionals will be answering healthy holiday food questions, providing tips on everything from how to make low carb stuffing and sugar free cookies to what treats to avoid at the abundance of holiday parties.

"People always love simple food planning tips and menu suggestions that transform meals into healthy options for people with diabetes and everyone at the table," says Janis Roszler, certified diabetes educator and AADE Educator of the Year. "dLife's offerings give my patients the information to make it easier every day, and now even during the holiday season, to lead a healthy diabetes life."

Along with the Holiday Helpline, dLife features over 8,500 diabetic recipes and step-by-step healthy-cooking videos at http://www.dLife.com/recipes. As the number-one resource for diabetes information, inspiration and connection, dLife also has extensive coverage of a wide variety of other aspects of managing diabetes.
