From St.Lucia:

When I am around my friends and they ask me, "Do you want a sweet?", what should I say if I do not want them to know I am diabetic?


Just decline, saying something like "I'm not hungry now." Although, I should add that having diabetes and wanting to take care of yourself is nothing to be embarrassed about.
