Here is a question I recently received from FOODPICKER.org

I just been diagnosed with diabetes.  Doctors say I have uncontrollable diabetes any tips on how I can get my sugar level down?

Answer:  There are many different methods that can be used to manage your blood sugars.  Speak with your doctor to figure out what will work best for you.  Treatment for diabetes may include:

  • Consuming a balanced diet containing fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, low-fat dairy products and fish
  • Engaging in 30-60 minutes of physical activity most days of the week
  • Monitoring your blood sugars as recommended
  • Taking insulin or oral medications as prescribed by your physician
  • Modest weight loss of 5-10%
  • Meeting with a Registered Dietitian (RD) or Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE) to develop a plan that works best for you
