Food and Diabetes


Having diabetes means having a unique relationship with food. You are more aware than most of what you’re putting into your body because of the impact it has on your diabetes management. This awareness can be a huge advantage in terms of taking care of your health! While it may be complicated with carb counts and insulin dosing, there are some who have found certain food combinations to be helpful in their management. Here are some considerations in nutrition that you may find useful. Remember that everyone is different, and like varying taste, food regimens for some may not be the answer for others, so sample and decide. Bon appétit!
