Health Tip: Dieticians Can Help Diabetics

Better Blood Sugar Balance

(HealthDay News) -- Controlling your diet is an important part of managing diabetes, and working with a registered dietician (R.D.) can help.

The American Diabetes Association says an R.D. can help you:

  • Learn how to balance activity and the foods you eat.
  • Learn to read food labels and make the best choices.
  • Create a daily meal plan.
  • Plan for special events and dining out.
  • Learn to incorporate ethnic foods into your diet.
  • Understand how to make healthy substitutions and find helpful cookbooks.
