With all the great things the holidays bring they also cause some extra stress. Many diabetic and other chronic condition people especially can feel some extra stress during this time of year between different events, hosting friends, family and of course, holiday food!

Therefore, it is important to keep blood sugars in check and manage other disease throughout the year and not “get off track” during the holidays.


Tips for happy and healthy new year with loved ones:

  • Do not forget your meal routines: Try to eat meals at a similar time as when you usually would to aid with blood glucose control

  • Healthy plate: Select a smaller sized plate to limit portion sizes at buffet-style gatherings.

  • Select non starchy vegetables: Do not forget to add them as they are excellent source of fiber which means it can keep you full for longer time and low in calories.

  • Too much liquid calories and carbohydrate can be dangerous:  Look for alternatives such as sugar free drinks, herbal teas, infused drinks, lemonade.

  • Incorporate movement: If 30 minutes of walking is too much try taking three 10-minute walks or six 5-minute walks go with your family together to feel less burdened.

  • Lastly, include relaxation and adequate rest: We all need time to rest and recharge. Have adequate sleep is utmost important.


We wish you a happy and healthy new year!!!


Success Stories

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
