The incidence of diabetes increases every day, affecting not only those who may have diabetes, but also those who care for, live with, and work with people with diabetes. This site focuses primarily on the role that diet plays in the treatment of adults with diabetes. Food can have a significant impact on the successful management of diabetes. Meal management can be very confusing.

While this site is intended to help simplify how to plan meals and what foods to eat, it is not intended to replace any information, counseling, or advice that your health care provider has given you.

Topics covered include:

  • General Overview of Diabetes and Food
  • Food Groups and Diabetes
  • Eating for Target Blood Glucose Levels
  • Eating for Cardiovascular Health
  • and Diabetes Medications
