Over 25 million people have diabetes in the United States.
Research shows that diabetes can be well controlled, if not prevented by some people, with a few lifestyle changes.
Diabetes is a disease where the body’s ability to use or make insulin is altered, leading to increased sugar levels in the body. A well planned carbohydrate controlled meal plan can help manage diabetes and keep blood sugars to close as normal as possible.
NUTRITIONAL THERAPY FOR DIABETES IS OFTEN THE FIRST TREATMENT ADVISED BY DOCTORS TO DIABETICS FOR GLUCOSE CONTROL, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE GESTATIONAL DIABETES OR NEWLY DIAGNOSED TYPE 2 DIABETES.
