Chances are, diabetes affects you or someone you know.
The Diabetes Care and Research program wants to highlight the role of our fabulous Registered Dietitians on Staff!
Their role is to provide nutritional counselling to patients for optimal health and blood sugar control.
People with diabetes need to understand how foods and nutrition affect their bodies to successfully manage their disease. Dietitians can provide detailed information about how to incorporate healthy eating and practical tips to address daily challenges. A dietitian can help put together a daily meal plan that considers individual food preferences, provide education on balanced meals, and will work with patients who have diabetes to set nutrition goals to improve their health.
What does a balanced meal look like?
