If you have diabetes, what you eat and when to eat can have a big impact on your health. The right diet plan can help steady your blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. Well maintained diet can also keep you at a healthy weight.
But it’s more than just eating the right foods (fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, some dairy) and stay away from unhealthy food (fried foods, food high in salt, sweets, drinks high in sugar). How much you eat – and how often – can be important, too.
A dietitian or dietitian nutritionist – they’re the same – is a specialist who trained to help a diabetic patient to figure out a plan for all those things.
