Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to head outdoors. From fresh grilling ideas to sure-fire travel tips, the June issue of Diabetes Forecast, the Healthy Living Magazine of the American Diabetes Association, offers many ways to savor the sizzle of the season.

Fire and Nice: Summer is prime time for firing up the grill, and luckily this cooking method is a generally healthy way to prepare food while enjoying some sunshine. Anyone looking to expand beyond the usual barbecue fare will enjoy this collection of recipes, from main dishes like Apple Mustard Pork Chops to sides like Strawberry and Grape Tomato Kebabs.

Happy Trails: About 10 percent of people with diabetes experience problems with diabetes control when traveling, such as lost supplies, equipment exposed to the elements and unhealthy food options at every turn. This article presents 35 expert-approved tips for healthy and hassle-free travel to fit any kind of vacation.

Fathers Know Best: Just in time for Father’s Day, Diabetes Forecast showcases some of the dads who work tirelessly to provide for their families and set good examples for their children—all while helping manage diabetes. These five men show that, when it comes to diabetes care, supportive dads (and granddads!) can make all the difference.

Sending Out an SOS: Checking blood glucose, taking medications, hitting the gym, counting carbs and cooking up healthful meals: At times, the laundry list of responsibilities may feel overwhelming to someone with diabetes. This understandable sense of burden or defeat has a name, diabetes distress, and doctors are just beginning to understand it. The magazine explores ways people with diabetes can overcome these negative emotions.

  • New diabetes drugs are the first to target the kidneys—plus how diabetes medications evolve from ideas to reaching the patients who need them.
