Tip of the Day

World Diabetes Day

Saturday was World Diabetes Day. One of the main goals of this important day is to help the public understand the serious impact of diabetes and know, where possible, how to avoid or delay diabetes and its complications.

World Diabetes Day was introduced in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to the alarming rise in diabetes around the world.

To successfully manage diabetes, you need to understand how foods and nutrition affect your body. Food portions and food proportions are important. Carbohydrates, fat and protein need to be balanced to ensure blood sugar levels stay as stable as possible. This is particularly important for people with type 1 diabetes.

See a registered dietitian if you suffer from diabetes. He or she will work with you and your physician to strike the right balance between your meal plan and any diabetes medications you use.
