    Your diet is VERY important to keeping your blood sugar in check, and to prevent complications from high and low extremes in blood sugars. Despite what some are saying, if you eat fatty foods and sugar consistently and in large amounts, you will end up with complications such as blindness and lost limbs from high sugar levels…I’ve seen it.

    Having diabetes doesn’t mean that you have to start eating special foods or follow a complicated diabetes diet plan. Your diabetes diet simply translates into eating a variety of foods in moderate amounts, having a treat or two, and sticking to regular mealtimes.

    This means choosing a diet that emphasizes vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Consistency also is key, because your body responds to excess calories and fat by creating an undesirable rise in blood sugar. Sticking to planned mealtimes is very important; always carry a snack to prevent drops in blood sugar.

    Meeting with a dietitian is often helpful in getting started, as there are multiple plans and options for you based on your lifestyle. I have included a few links for a some different types of plans for you. Take a look, and find one that works best with your food preferences and life.

    This doesn’t mean that you can’t have a treat every now and then, or are on a strict diet. Moderation is key, and fresh healthy foods should be the main component.

    Best of luck to you.
