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.

Here are a few question-and-answer threads about healthy eating:

I'm having trouble getting my morning readings down. How can I help this?

Why do I feel hungry all the time when I eat fruit, vegetables, and cereals?

Is anyone a type 2 diabetic and following a ketogenic diet?


Here are conversations that have taken place about healthy eating:

Hi, I am wondering about the Keto Diet?

My husband has diabetes, what are some of the best meds?

I finally got to speak with a dietician last week.
