Nutritionists and Diabetes

Posted on May 10, 2018

Finding the right eating plan to manage your diabetes is challenging. There is so much conflicting diet information, and habits are hard to change. A nutritionist may be able to give you individualized advice and help you set goals that make sense for you. Has your doctor suggested seeing a nutritionist? Was it helpful?

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. Seeing a nutritionist is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about seeing a nutritionist:

After my A1c results, my P.A. referred me to a nutritionist. Hopefully, after making some changes we won't have to raise my insulin.

I will be going to classes with my nutritionist for preparing food.

I am desperate to find an eating plan that will help me lower my Blood Sugar readings. My doctor is not going to approve a visit with a nutritionist or dietician (due to insurance parameters). What eating plans do you use?

I should start working with a nutritionist. It's hard for me to change my eating habits.

I went to the nutritionist yesterday. I need to make changes and see a new endocrinologist, I'd lie if I say I wasn't overwhelmed, I will take it one day at the time and make slow substitutions.

Can you relate?
