Diet plays a vital role in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, which collectively affects more than 4 million people in the UK – making diabetes one of the most common health conditions.
Diet & diabetes
Stable blood sugar (glucose) levels are important for managing diabetes and preventing complications – and while medication can play an important part in this, diet and lifestyle are also key.
At Hadley Wood Hospital, we understand this can seem overwhelming at times, particularly if you are newly diagnosed or have experienced ill health or complications due to your diabetes. You’re not alone – and we are here to help. Our dietitian can work with you on a one-on-one basis, to develop a diet and nutrition plan that suits your individual needs.
With the right knowledge and guidance, learning how to manage diabetes – through monitoring blood sugar levels, adapting your food choices when needed and eating a balanced diet, alongside regular exercise – can be simpler than it may at first sound.
Embracing these tools can also be a big boost to your general wellbeing, and help you feel in control of managing your health again.
