Halloween Costumes Only People with Diabetes Will Understand

Shares

If ASweetLife threw a Halloween party it would, of course, be a diabetes-themed event. But the last thing anyone wants to do is dress up as a freaking glucose meter.  Or worse, a CGM that beeps all through the party.   And then…  you can’t dress up as a syringe or everyone will think you’re a  prick.  

You know what happened to me last time I wore my paper mache metformin costume?  My endo mistook me for a generic statin and everyone else thought I was the moon.

So, what are some of the best diabetes-themed costumes for the party we aren’t really planning? I shared the question with my friends and we racked our brains for diabetes costume ideas while we carved teal pumpkins and imagined a party where candy didn’t scare us.  Yep, you read that right.  There is nothing more haunting than the bolus you would have to take to cover three Hershey’s kisses, a mini pack of Life Savers, a roll of Smarties, half a Twix, and a Tootsie Pop.  There is no shriek more terrifying than the one that rips out of you when your glucose meter says HI. So, it’s a good idea to avoid the roller coaster and focus on costumes. (Or try some of these ideas for a low carb Halloween.)

With the creativity of Moira McCarthy, Melissa Lee, and Jacquie Wojick, I present you with a list of Halloween costumes only people with diabetes will understand.  Happy Halloween!
