Diets for Specific Medical Conditions

Importance of diet.


Whether or not a diabetic person needs or uses insulin to control blood sugar levels, diet is always important. A diabetic person…


…needs to eat regular meals and snacks…

…featuring moderate portions…

…of nutrient rich low calorie low fat foods…

…especially whole grains, fruits and vegetables.


If you think of it, such a diet is good for us all, but it is especially important for the diabetic person who needs to control blood sugar levels, avoid blood sugar spikes, and keep his or her weight under control. Carbohydrates are particularly important to manage.
