Eating And Living Better With Diabetes Or Prediabetes

If you have diabetes or prediabetes, your doctor will likely recommend that you see a dietitian to help you develop a healthy-eating plan. The plan helps you control your blood sugar (glucose), manage your weight and control heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats. You can help keep your blood glucose level in a safe range by making healthy food choices and tracking your eating habits.

A diabetes or prediabetes diet simply means eating the healthiest foods in moderate amounts and sticking to regular mealtimes. It is a healthy-eating plan that’s naturally rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories.

Come join the health educators of the East Shore District Health Department to learn how to take the mystery out of your blood glucose levels and learn tips on eating and living better!

DATE: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 11:00 am in Studio A.
