Nutritional Counseling For Diabetes Patients
How to Get Healthy Using a Diabetes Nutritionist
Diabetes is a result of having too much sugar collecting in your blood. There are multiple ways to manage your diabetes such as medication, exercise, and nutrition. As a Registered Dietitian, I focus on improving your nutrition so that we can better control your blood sugar. If overweight or obese, weight loss through proper nutrition will also help control your diabetes. What you eat, and how much is closely connected to managing your diabetes, and limiting any further complications.
Not managing your diabetes properly can lead to many health problems, including blindness, kidney failure, heart disease, and nerve damage. Diabetes can be preventable and well managed if you work closely with a Registered Dietitian, and much of these potential health problems can be avoided.
We will discuss the right foods to eat, and in what portions - focusing on making it fit your schedule. As mentioned on my weight loss page, there is no "one diet that fits all" approach; we will work together to find a way of eating that works best for you. With proper management of your diabetes, you can lead a full, active, and healthy life. It is important to start sooner rather than later. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions regarding diabetes, or any other nutrition related questions.
