Being able to maintain a healthy diet is a fundamental aspect of managing diabetes. The foods that you consume and the amount of physical activity you participate in can significantly help in controlling your blood sugar levels. For type 1 diabetes, our dietitians can provide nutritional advice to reduce excessively low or high blood sugar levels. For type 2 diabetes, our dietitians can help manage the disease through an appropriate balanced diet and regular exercise to control blood sugars. This can often reduce the dependence on medication. Overall, weight control and better blood sugar control can reduce the risk of complications of diabetes.
