The businessman or woman

Some of the hazards of the traditional business life are smoking, alcohol, and rich food. As smoking in the work place becomes less acceptable, patients should hopefully find it easier to give up, and to ask that meetings are smoke free. People with diabetes can drink in moderation (21 units a week for men and 14 units a week for women) but must never drink on an empty stomach. To reduce intake alcohol can be alternated with non-alcoholic drinks or diluted. Eating out may place a strain on the diabetes diet but most restaurants will grill meat or fish and provide plain potatoes, rice, or pasta, with bread to top up. Salad or vegetables and fruit are usually available and there is no need to have butter, dressing, sugar, or cream.
