Sponsored: Diet and diabetes

Written by 

I have Type 2 diabetes and want to make sure I am following the right type of diet. Can you recommend some resources?

For general information on diabetes and the diabetes diet:

• American Diabetes Association www.diabetes.org

• Joslin Diabetes Institue www.joslin.org/diabetes-information.html

For keeping track of your food intake, monitoring your calories and counting your carbohydrates (since they affect your blood sugar):

• My Fitness Pal - a free app you can download to your phone

• Supertracker from the USDA - www.supertracker.usda.gov

Some general information about diabetes:

Also, check with your local hospital or health department to see if they offer a diabetes support group, classes, or a certified diabetes educator (CDE). Classes and intruction are often covered by insurance.
