Healthy Eating and Diabetes

Posted on February 21, 2018

Diet changes can be difficult after a type 2 diabetes diagnosis, but healthy eating helps balance blood sugar and manage weight. Changing eating habits can be challenging as we get older. Finding the motivation to eat right when you have type 2 is best done alongside others with diabetes who understand the obstacles and rewards.

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Healthy eating is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
