Proper nutrition is important for everyone, but especially for those who have diabetes. With the proper diet, some individuals may even be able to keep their diabetes under control without medication.
If you have diabetes, it’s important to talk with your healthcare provider and a dietitian to find out what type of meal plan is most appropriate. A healthy meal plan has a good mix of carbohydrates, protein and fats.
When people hear a diabetes diagnosis, many want to eliminate carbs from their diet. But this is the wrong thing to do. You need to have some carbs in your diet for your brain to function properly and to help keep your blood sugar under control. Don’t forget that sugary drinks can also negatively affect diabetes. But with the right portions and combinations of foods, as well as a well-balanced diet, you can eat whatever you want—within reason.
